Chief justice honors Arrowood

By: Staff Report

CHARLOTTE — Lumberton native Catharine Arrowood recently received the Amicus Curiae Award from the chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

The award, which describes Arrowood as a “Friend of the Court,” is in recognition of her “outstanding service” to the state judicial branch as co-chair of the N.C. Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice. Arrowood is a Raleigh partner of the law firm of Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP.

The commission spent more than a year conducting a comprehensive review of North Carolina’s court system, the first such review in two decades. In March, Arrowood helped present the commission’s final report to Chief Justice Mark Martin, who said its recommendations “create a framework for dramatic, systemic improvement in the administration of justice in North Carolina.”
