As part of our interest in educating the public and ensuring the best system of justice, Modern Courts is sharing the Historical Society of the New York Courts and the Commercial Division Advisory Council new short film about the Commercial Division of the New York State Supreme Court.
The film portrays recent improvements to the Commercial Division’s rules, procedures, and operations which have been designed to be responsive to the needs and concerns of the business community. The ultimate goal of these changes is to make the business litigation process in New York more cost‑effective, predictable, and expeditious, and to thereby provide a more hospitable environment for business litigation in New York State.
Modern Courts organizes forums and panel discussions designed to educate the public about pressing court-related issues.
