Abstract:
A key statutory exception to the rule against enforcing contractual attorney fee provisions is found in Section 6-21.2 of the North Carolina General Statutes, which allows enforcement of attorney fee provisions in notes, conditional sale contracts, and \"other evidence of indebtedness\" under certain circumstances. Since 1967, this statute has been the main statutory exception applicable to fee provisions in contracts and the subject of much case law. In June 2011, the North Carolina General Assembly added another major exception by creating G.S. 6-21.6, which authorizes courts to enforce reciprocal attorney fee provisions in business contracts. This bulletin discusses the law surrounding the existing statute and introduces new G.S. 6-21.6.

Abstract:
Recently the General Assembly made significant changes to the statutes governing decedents' estates. These amendments included an effort to capture the range of contested estate issues into a general, defined category and to set rules to govern them. The new legislation designates these matters as \"estate proceedings\" and goes on to specify the procedures that apply to their adjudication--from filing to litigation to hearing to appeal. This bulletin discusses the new procedural framework for contested estate proceedings.
