Learn about how to tailor your public records request to gain access as quickly as possible while avoiding costly fees.
- Wind Energy in North Carolina: The legal issues raised by wind energy’s presence in North Carolina are both complex and numerous. Learn about how wind energy is affecting local and state governments, as well as how the industry is impacting property and other legal rights.
- The Conservative Legal Movement: The conservative legal movement is on the upswing. Learn about its roots and where it is heading, from The Slaughterhouse Cases to economic liberties.
- The Legality of Occupational Licensure: Why does it take ten times as long to become a barber as it does to become an EMT in North Carolina? Learn about what licensing law is, and how it has spun out of control.
