Courtroom Battlefields: Justice in NC

On Thursday, April 11 from 5-6:30pm in Anne Belk Hall 110, the Pitt County Chief Assistant District Attorney, Valerie Pearce, will present a talk "Courtroom Battlefields: Justice in North Carolina."  Ms. Pearce has over 20 years of experience working in the juvenile and adult justice systems in North Carolina, and has been a defense attorney and prosecutor at various times.

A short Q&A will follow.  If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Kirstin Morgan at
