Commission Seeks Input From NCBA Members
Chief Justice Mark Martin recently created the North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice. The Commission has been divided into five working committees: Civil Justice, Criminal Investigation and Adjudication, Legal Professionalism, Public Trust and Confidence, and Technology.
The purpose of the Commission is to examine ways to modernize and improve North Carolina’s court system as well as ensure all citizens have timely and efficient access to the court. For more information about the Commission, visit www.nccalj.org.
The Commission is currently in the process of identifying any and all issues that might fall under the five committees listed above. As part of this process, the Commission is receptive to information and feedback from our membership as to issues and opportunities for improvement we recommend the Commission consider.
The Commission is in the beginning stages of identifying issues and therefore welcomes any and all thoughts that you might have, including issues that not only impact you as a practitioner but might also impact your clients’ interactions with the court system.
In order to streamline the communications process, the North Carolina Bar Association has tasked its Administration of Justice Committee 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 AOJ Committee and then onto the Commission.
If there are any issues or ideas you have about items the Commission should consider, please send them to Kim Crouch at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Friday, October 30, 2015.
