At its fall meeting in Washington, D.C., the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) held several sessions led by CCL attorneys. CCL President Robert S. Peck moderated a session November 21, entitled, "A conversation with Chief Justices," in which lawyers and corporate council had an opportunity to raise questions about issues facing the judicial system with more than 20 state Supreme Court chief justices.  Peck also co-chaired a November 22 meeting of the NCSC Lawyers Committee, which discussed a forthcoming task force effort to look at improving the civil justice system and other NCSC projects. CCL Senior Litigation Counsel Andre Mura also co-chaired a meeting that day of the NCSC Young Lawyers Committee, which discussed a civic education project using NCSC-produced graphic novels about the justice system, as well as presented on that project to the Lawyers Committee.

The NCSC is the think tank of the state courts and staffs the Conference of Chief Justices, the Conference of State Court Administrators, and other associations of judicial leaders.
