Staff report

RALEIGH — Rowan County Chief District Court Judge Charlie Brown taught a course in criminal law at the UNC School of Government Judicial College this month.

Brown was asked by the Judicial College to teach the course to eight new judges appointed by Gov. Roy Cooper in 2017.

The daylong course included instruction on pretrial release, motions to suppress and trial procedure.

All North Carolina trial judges must attend a two-week training session sponsored by the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts and facilitated by the Judicial College.

The Judicial College provides education and training for judicial officials, including judges, magistrates and clerks of court.

Brown has taught eight courses at the Judicial College, including instruction on domestic violence law and judicial ethics.

New judge training focuses on conducting criminal, civil and juvenile court, including issues of ethics and fairness and other legal topics.

The UNC School of Government is the largest university-based local government training, advisory and research organization in the nation. It serves more than 12,000 public officials each year.
