Independent Entities

The Supreme Court appoints half of the members to two independent entities – the Judicial Conduct Board and the Court of Judicial Discipline. Both of these entities are within the Pennsylvania Judiciary but act independently of the Supreme Court.

Interbranch Task Force

Governor Tom Wolf, Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor, and General Assembly leaders from both houses and parties jointly established the Pennsylvania Juvenile Justice Task Force. At the request of Pennsylvania leaders, the recommendations will serve as “the foundation for statutory, budgetary, and administrative changes to be considered during the 2021-2022 regular session of the General Assembly.” Pew Charitable Trusts and the Crime and Justice Institute are providing technical assistance to the Task Force.
