Join us in working to bring fairness to Pennsylvania’s civil justice system
The Pennsylvania Coalition for Civil Justice Reform is a statewide, nonpartisan group of organizations and individuals representing businesses, health care, public service, taxpayers and other perspectives. We are dedicated to bringing fairness to our courts by elevating awareness of civil justice issues and advocating for legal reform in the legislature.
Pennsylvania’s civil justice system faces increasing challenges – with a lack of balance in certain laws, legal precedents and courtrooms. These challenges affect all Pennsylvanians, as an unfair lawsuit system raises consumer prices, takes away good jobs, and reduces our access to health care.
