The Chief Justice’s Rules Advisory Commission was formally established on September 25, 2019, by order of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. The order formalized the Commission’s membership and major responsibilities.
The Commission consists of a chairperson, who is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court or his or her designee; one judge or justice from the Appellate Division; one judge from the Superior Court Division; one judge from the District Court Division; one clerk of the superior court; one trial court administrator; three practicing attorneys; and four at-large members. All members, with the exception of the chairperson, serve for a term of three years.
The major responsibilities of the Commission are to monitor the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure and the General Rules of Practice for the Superior and District Courts and to recommend amendments to those rule sets as needed. The Commission is currently focused on rule changes that are necessary for a statewide electronic-filing and case-management system.
