RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A blue-ribbon commission examining how to modernize and streamline North Carolina’s court system while ensuring it delivers justice fairly has officially started its work.

The North Carolina Commission on the Administration of Law and Justice held its first meeting Wednesday in Raleigh. Chief Justice Mark Martin announced the panel’s creation earlier this year. Martin wants a thorough review of the state’s judicial branch and a plan to strengthen its courts.

More than 80 people are participating directly in the commission’s work. Most are also serving on five committees focusing on civil justice, criminal investigation and adjudication, legal professionalism, public trust and confidence, and technology.

The commission’s reports and recommendations are expected to be made public in early 2017.
