For decades, faculty members at the School of Government have provided training for new magistrates, ongoing educational programs, comprehensive written materials, and consultation to North Carolina magistrates. The diversity of these offerings reflect the diversity of the office: magistrates are responsible for determining whether to issue search and arrest warrants, whether individuals should be detained for examination in response to a petition for involuntary commitment, performing marriages, and for conducting small claims court.
