Welcome to the North Carolina Criminal Law blog. Since 2009, this blog has been produced by the faculty and staff of the UNC School of Government. The purpose of the blog is to disseminate information about, and to serve as a forum for the discussion of, North Carolina criminal law and procedure and related topics.
We welcome topic suggestions, but generally don’t run guest posts from authors outside the School of Government.
The authors welcome your comments and other feedback. You may email the author of any post directly at any time. You may also post comments on the blog. The blog software allows some comments to post automatically and flags other comments for moderation by an administrator. First-time comments, comments with links, and other comments that the software identifies as possible spam are especially likely to require moderation. Authors do not check the moderation queue every day so some comments may await approval for some time. Authors may choose not to approve, or to remove after approval, comments that are irrelevant, are inconsistent with the purpose of the blog, are profane, contain ad hominem attacks on others, or are otherwise inappropriate.
Finally, those curious about whether their phone calls to the School of Government will immediately be broadcast on the blog should read this post — but the short answer is no.
