The District Court at 50

Record #:
An examination of how North Carolina’s District Court has evolved since 1966 entailed comparisons that could be measured by society’s changing perception to issues such as gender equality, substance abuse, at risk children, and domestic violence. Introducing these issues bridged the author’s discussion of how they are handled within the context of civil and criminal jurisdictions and in the face of present social issues such as cultural diversity. From this discussion, Drennan concluded the evolving role of judges and technology in particular will play an important part in how North Carolina’s District Court adjusts to inevitable change.
