CHARLOTTE – Bar members and those seeking legal resources will find more of what they’re looking for and easier on the Mecklenburg County Bar and Foundation’s new website.

We took the program areas people use the most and brought them to the forefront,” said Leah Campbell, executive director of the Mecklenburg County Bar and Foundation. “By condensing the information, making it easier to find and incorporating user feedback, we now have a website that will yield a better all-around experience.”

The blues within the new palette reflect the trust, confidence, responsibility and purpose evocative of the profession and practice of law.
