North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice
Chief Justice Mark Martin has created the North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice to examine ways to modernize and improve North Carolina’s court system to ensure all citizens have timely access to the courts.
The Commission is seeking input from across the state.
The Commission is broken down into five committees: Civil Justice, Criminal Investigation and Adjudication, Legal Professionalism, Public Trust and Confidence,
The five co-chairs are Catharine Arrowood, Justice Barbara Jackson, Dean David Levi, retired Magistrate Judge William Webb, and Brad Wilson.
The Commission has 65 members from diverse backgrounds including the private sector as well as stakeholders from within the judicial system. To see a complete list of the commission members visit: www.nccalj.org.
The Commission is looking to receive input from across the state and will be holding meetings over the next 18 months.
The Commission is currently in the process of identifying any and all issues that might fall under the five committees listed above.
The North Carolina Bar Association has tasked the Administration of Justice Committee (AOJ) of the Bar Association to interface with the Commission. Kim Crouch staffs the AOJ Committee and will be the point person for making sure that all feedback gets funneled to the Commission.
Please feel free to email Kim Crouch at firstname.lastname@example.org with any issues or feedback you think the Commission should consider over the next 18 months.
The North Carolina Bar Association will continue to update our members, as well as the general public, about the important work undertaken by the Commission.
