Trial Briefs


Trial Briefs, NCAJ’s flagship publicationis printed every quarter in winter, spring, summer and fall. 

Inside you’ll find valuable information that’s tailored not just to and about NCAJ members, but that also offers in-depth discussions of North Carolina law and its application in our courts. You won’t want to miss all that Trial Briefs has to offer North Carolina trial attorneys.

Each and every one of the 2,000+ members of NCAJ receives not only a print version of the magazine via the United States Postal Service, but also a week before the magazine arrives in physical mailboxes, we release a link to the digital version for advance promotion of content.
