NCCALJ was convened in September 2015 and tasked with examining five areas of broad inquiry within our state's Judicial Branch: civil justice, criminal investigation and adjudication, legal professionalism, public trust and confidence, and technology. Over the last nine months, NCCALJ's five committees have conducted research, consulted with numerous experts and court officials, and engaged in collaborative discussions to identify areas for improvement in North Carolina's court system. After receiving public input on the interim reports, NCCALJ's five committees will finalize recommendations for delivery in early 2017 to Chief Justice Mark Martin.
