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.
