About the Fund for Modern Courts
The Fund for Modern Courts is an independent, statewide court reform organization committed to improving the judicial system for all New Yorkers. Founded in 1955 by concerned citizens, prominent lawyers, and business leaders. Modern Courts strives to improve the administration and quality of justice in our courts. By building relationships with legal service and advocacy organizations, community members, bar associations and state and local governments, Modern Courts works with those who want to ensure an independent, diverse and highly qualified judiciary and provide equal access to justice for all New Yorkers.
Modern Courts’ highest priority is to help lead the effort to simplify the court system both to eliminate the need for litigants to appear in multiple courts for related issues and to provide more resources for courts that need them the most. Contributions to this event will support Modern Courts’ efforts to reform the existing complex, confusing court system that inhibits access to justice for many and the efficient delivery of justice for all.
