Rhode Center Letter in Support of North Carolina Justice for All Project

This letter to members of the North Carolina General Assembly shows our strong support for the policy recommendations proposed by the North Carolina Justice for All Project: licensing non-lawyer legal practitioners and relaxing rules governing unauthorized practice of law (UPL). These recommendations reflect thoughtful and serious attention to one of this country’s most pernicious crises: the civil justice gap. Not only will the policy recommendations help address the justice gap in North Carolina, they will establish North Carolina among a growing group of states leading thoughtful reform of outdated and excessive restrictions. We urge the General Assembly to implement these reforms to help millions of North Carolinians who currently lack access to meaningful legal help.
