Who We Are

The Conference was established by the General Assembly “…to assist in improving the administration of justice in North Carolina by coordinating the prosecution efforts of the various district attorneys.” The primary objective of the Conference is to provide crucial support to prosecutors in the discharge of their duties. To accomplish this, the Conference extends a range of valuable resources and guidance, including Professional Development, Publications, and Research Assistance. These resources enable prosecutors to uphold justice for North Carolina’s citizens in an effective and efficient manner.
