Courthouse Access Cards

Available to MCB Members

The Courthouse Access Card entitles the bearer to enter the Mecklenburg County Courthouse through the employee line at the screening station at the main entrance to the courthouse at McDowell and 4th Street.


NOTICE: Access Card Renewal Schedule Has Changed
All MCB members with a current Access Card will now renew their cards beginning July 1 and ending September 30. This renewal schedule will coincide with the MCB dues renewal time period. Eligibility for Access Card renewal will be specified on each MCB member's fee invoice.


  • An initial (non-refundable) fee of $30.00 will be charged for the Access Card.
  • A $5.00 annual (non-refundable) fee will be charged to maintain the Access Card.  The annual maintenance fee will not be pro-rated, and will be assessed each fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) after the fiscal year in which the initial Card fee was paid.
  • These fees are waived for Assistant District Attorneys and Assistant Public Defenders.
