Celine's on Broadway


Join us for a great buffet lunch and a presentation from Justice Mark Davis asking the question, “should judges should ‘make law,’ or simply defer to the legislative branch of government?”

Associate Justice Mark Davis of the Supreme Court of North Carolina will be speaking about his new book, A Warren Court of our Own: The Exum Court and the Expansion of Individual Rights in North Carolina. In this book, Justice Davis thoroughly analyzes the fascinating period between 1986 and 1995 when – under the leadership of Chief Justice Jim Exum – the Supreme Court issued numerous landmark decisions that had the effect of greatly expanding the individual rights of both criminal defendants and individuals bringing lawsuits against corporations and governments.

For those who wish to stay after the program for an extra 30 minutes, CLE credit is available.

The luncheon has moved to a new location: Celine’s on Broadway. Lunch is $15 for members and $25 for guests, and an RSVP is required. Seating is limited; sign up below.

Members of the Buncombe Bar are always welcome to attend the business meeting, free of charge.
