Updated Guide to North Carolina Materials

The Goodson Law Library research guide to North Carolina Practice was updated recently. One of the most important changes? This year's move of the Clarence W. Walker North Carolina Alcove itself – from its former home on Level 2 to its current place on Level 3! (Materials from the former Federal Alcove are located nearby on Level 3, in the William F. Stevens Federal Area.) The North Carolina Alcove, which contains important primary and secondary state law materials, moved to the main floor of the library in order to provide alcove users with convenient access to state materials, as well as to assistance from the library service desk.

What else is new in the N.C. Practice research guide? Here are a few highlights:
  • Updated editions of print treatises like Arrest, Search and Investigation in North Carolina, the North Carolina Personal Injury Liens Manual, and North Carolina Manual of Complaints.
  • Pattern Jury Instructions for North Carolina civil, criminal and motor vehicle cases are now available online in Westlaw, as well as in print in the NC Alcove and online from the University of North Carolina School of Government.
  • A new Style Manual for the North Carolina Rules of Appellate Procedure (April 2017) is now available online.
For help with using North Carolina legal materials in print or online, be sure to Ask a Librarian.
