NCMD Civics Initiative

The United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina is participating in a nationwide civics outreach initiative for middle and high school students coordinated by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and the Federal Bar Association.  As part of this initiative, the judges, lawyers, and staff of the court welcome the opportunity to visit with your students at your schools and invite your students to the L. Richardson Preyer Federal Building and Courthouse in Greensboro and the Hiram H. Ward Federal Building and Courthouse in Winston-Salem.

The programs designed by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts are aligned with national standards and law-related education best practices.  Visit the U.S. Courts Educational Resources for more about Educational Outreach.  Visit the Public Schools of North Carolina for North Carolina Essential Standards for American History: The Founding Principles, Civics and Economics and Eighth Grade Social Studies.

Chief Judge William L. Osteen, Jr. and Laura Dildine, law clerk to Judge N. Carlton Tilley, Jr., are managing this program in the Middle District of North Carolina.  Please contact Laura Dildine, for more information about the Middle District’s civics initiative and to schedule a school or courthouse visit.
