CHARLOTTE — The North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice is inviting public comment on its work to date during an open Aug. 25 meeting at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center.
The meeting is designed so citizens can comment on how the courts are doing, what the courts do well and what needs improving. The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., 600 East Fourth St., Charlotte.
The North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice was tasked with examining five areas of broad inquiry within North Carolina’s judicial branch — civil justice, criminal investigation and adjudication, legal professionalism, public trust and confidence, and technology.
Over the last nine months the commission’s five committees have conducted research, consulted with 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, the commission’s five committees will finalize recommendations for delivery early next year to Chief Justice Mark Martin.
