2021 North Carolina Law Review Symposium "Home Rule in the 21st Century" coming October 8

The North Carolina Law Review Annual Symposium this year is on "Home Rule in the Twenty-First Century" We are delighted that the Symposium is previewing with us here, and also that our first "Field Dispatch" come to us from the former Charlotte City Attorney Bob Hagemann, on developments since the North Carolina "Bathroom Bill" HB2 was revised, making room for home rule approaches to gender discrimination issues.
