Parking Alert: South Road Construction

Partial road barriers have been placed at the intersection of South Road and Country Club Road due to a summer construction project. The School’s parking deck is open and accessible from South Road for the duration of the project by driving between the two barriers and entering the parking gate immediately on the left.

Welcome to the School of Government's NC Magistrates microsite.  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, conducting an initial appearance and setting conditions of pretrial release in criminal cases, deciding whether individuals should be detained for examination in response to a petition for involuntary commitment, performing marriages, and for conducting small claims court.
