Governor Corbett Announces Confirmation of Jenkins to Superior Court


Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett has announced the confirmation of the Honorable Patricia H. Jenkins to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.


“Judge Jenkins’ record of integrity will make her a great asset to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania,” Corbett said. “Her vast legal and judicial knowledge will serve all the people of Pennsylvania, and I want to thank the Senate for her confirmation.”


In addition to her 20 years of service as a Delaware County Court judge, Jenkins brings a wealth of legal experience from the private, public and academic sectors. As a professor of paralegal studies for both Widener University and Villanova University, Jenkins instructed students in litigation specialization and property law.


Judge Jenkins is a graduate of Dickinson School of Law and Albright College. She also obtained a Master of Laws in Taxation from the Villanova Law School.


The Superior Court was established in 1895 and is one of Pennsylvania's two statewide intermediate appellate courts. Cases before the Superior Court are usually heard by panels of three judges sitting in Philadelphia, Harrisburg or Pittsburgh, but may also be heard en banc by nine judges. The Superior Court often travels to various locations throughout Pennsylvania to hear cases.
