About this Blog

The faculty and staff of the UNC School of Government have produced the North Carolina Criminal Law blog since 2009. The purpose of the blog is to disseminate information about 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 invite your feedback. You may email the author of any post directly at any time. In some instances, the author of a post may choose to enable comments for that post. When comments are enabled, each comment must be moderated by the author before it will appear. When comments are enabled, the comments section is intended as a limited public forum for the discussion of topics related to the post. Therefore, authors will not approve comments that are off topic, nor comments that are threatening, libelous, obscene, or otherwise unprotected by the First Amendment. Comments that are critical of or disagree with the post are fine; when comments are enabled, authors won’t disapprove individual comments based on viewpoint.

If you have questions or comments about this page, or have comments or questions about the purpose or administration of the blog, contact Jeff Welty.

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.
