In just two years, North Carolina’s legal climate fell from seventh in the nation to 33rd, marking North Carolina’s lowest ranking since 2002. This erosion is attributed to erratic court decisions, shifts in the courts, changes in policy and the growing influence of personal injury attorneys in our state government.
We know that North Carolina must improve its legal climate in order to attract and retain investment. That’s why the NC Chamber advocates for policies that will foster certainty and predictability in our legal system, providing job creators the transparency and clarity they need to do business.
