Supreme Court uses PBS to educate public on courts

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court is teaming up with the state’s Public Broadcasting Service to offer specials informing residents about the court system.

The programs will cover a variety of topics including pro se representation, the importance of jury service, alternative dispute resolution, and will also include several Indiana Supreme Court oral arguments. The videos will begin airing Thursday.

Indiana Supreme Court public information officer Kathryn Dolan said the programs are part of a new partnership between PBS and the Supreme Court and there will be others offered in the future. The programs in this series are the same that are available online on the court’s website. Dolan said the Supreme Court is pleased that PBS will be offering a new audience for the videos.

All eight Indiana PBS stations will offer the programming, although not all of their schedules have been updated to include the series. The first program set to air Thursday is “Family Matters: Choosing to Represent Yourself in Court.”


Indiana Trial Lawyers Association, Indiana Paralegal Association, Indiana State Bar Association, Indiana Supreme Court, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting provided funding for the series.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
