Communications Advice for Courts in a Crisis (or Undergoing Reform)

As anyone familiar with Smart Pretrial can tell you, PJI views effective communications as an essential component of system change. Beth Riggert, Communications Counsel for the Supreme Court of Missouri, makes a similar case in an article titled "Controlling the Message in Times of Court Challenges," in the National Center for State Courts' newly released Trends in State Courts . Riggert's focus is on court communications in crises, but her advice applies as well to efforts to improve a system—to give a favorite example: when taking steps to replace money bail with decisions based on risk.
