PA Courts Roll Out News & Updates Subscription Feature


Earlier this year, the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) launched a new subscription feature that allows attorneys, members of the public, and the media to sign up for email updates on court news and information.

According to a February 17th press release, the new feature is designed to enhance communication with court users and help keep Pennsylvania’s Courts “transparent and accessible,” especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Subscribers may select which types of information they’d like to receive, including digital newsletters; court resources such as infographics, videos, and reports; and/or alerts from the PA Appellate Courts on new opinions, orders, and filings. Users who choose to receive the alerts from the appellate courts can specify whether they get content from the PA Supreme, Superior, and/or Commonwealth Courts.

To subscribe, simply visit the AOPC’s Subscription Signup page, select the item(s) you wish to receive, and submit your email address.
