The Office of Public Affairs works to promote awareness of the work of the New York State Judiciary and the New York State Unified Court System among the public, the legal community and our employees. The Office is responsible for outreach to communities, schools, bar associations and others to inform New Yorkers about the courts and the resources available to assist the public. Within the Unified Court System, the Office works to share information on programs and initiatives among our employees who work at 315 courthouses and other court facilities around New York State.
