Fostering certainty and predictability in NC’s legal system
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.
While North Carolina once had a top-10 legal climate, we have now fallen to 16th. 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.
North Carolina’s competitive standing in the modern global economy hinges on the strength of the state’s legal climate. To restore confidence in the state’s civil justice system, the NC Chamber established the NC Chamber Legal Institute. As North Carolina’s organized voice for legal policy development and analysis, the NC Chamber Legal Institute is charged with developing legal strategies to protect North Carolina businesses at the legislature and in the courts.
