The North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys (“NCADA”) will hold a Judicial Candidates' Forum on Friday, June 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Forum will feature judicial candidates running in statewide elections for seats on the North Carolina Supreme Court and the North Carolina Court of Appeals. The appellate races are statewide races that impact all citizens of North Carolina.
Twelve candidates seek election for six open appellate level judicial seats - four candidates for North Carolina Supreme Court and eight candidates for North Carolina Court of Appeals. Information about each candidate may be found on the NCADA’s website at the Judicial Candidates’ Forum page. Additionally, a Special Candidates Issue of The Resource is available for download.
The Forum will be held at the Wilmington Convention Center, Wilmington, North Carolina in conjunction with NCADA’s 45th Annual Meeting. Approximately 200 attendees are expected.
The Forum gives members of the public and the bar a rare opportunity to learn about the candidates who wish to serve the state at the appellate court level. Each candidate will have the opportunity to answer a question germane to the members of the civil defense trial bar and to briefly discuss his or her qualifications for the position.
The NCADA brings together civil trial attorneys to promote the exchange of information, ideas, and litigation techniques, and to strengthen the practice, improve the skills, and enhance the knowledge of lawyers defending individuals and businesses in North Carolina.
