PRLog - Sep. 18, 2012 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- The North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys (“NCADA”) will hold a Judicial Candidates' Forum on Friday, September 28, 2012 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Forum, co-hosted by the NC Chamber and sponsored by businesses and law firms, 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.
Eight candidates seek election for open appellate level judicial seats - two candidates for North Carolina Supreme Court and six candidates for North Carolina Court of Appeals. Information about each candidate may be found on the NCADA’s website at http://www.ncada.org under the Judicial Candidates’ Forum link.
The Forum will be held at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center in Greensboro, North Carolina in conjunction with the annual Fall Seminar. More than 300 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 Forum will be followed by a reception jointly sponsored by the NCADA and the NC Chamber and held in honor of the candidates.
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.
