Teplitz Memorial Court Room, 3900 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15260

This program is aimed towards students. Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts (PMC) PMC will be hosting a free movie screening of “Judging Juries” followed by a discussion with the award-winning film maker, Abby Ginzberg. This screening will be presented in the University of Pittsburgh Barco Law Building, in the Moot Court Room.

Judging Juries is a new 23-minute documentary which reveals some of the barriers to representative juries and the consequences of depriving citizens of a jury that includes a fair cross-section of their community. The film offers a powerful argument for why we need changes in our laws to fully realize the promise of a fair jury.
