Work Description

The North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law (NCICL) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-partisan organization devoted to educating the public, bar, and policymakers about constitutional issues, particularly economic and related issues, both national and in North Carolina and, when appropriate, litigating such constitutional issues. It is located in Raleigh, NC.

NCICL was formed in 2003 and has actively litigated since that time in both the North Carolina and federal courts. While its initial litigation focus has been on the granting by governmental entities of so-called “incentives” in the form of taxpayers’ money being used for corporate welfare, it also has been active in several areas of unconstitutional taxation, including the lottery tax and the funding of appellate judicial elections by a tax on attorneys. NCICL has a file of active cases in the constitutional field and will continue to litigate these matters.

The educational component of NCICL includes the furnishing of speakers on constitutional issues and on the work of NCICL, op-ed pieces and White Papers on constitutional issues.
