    The ABCs of Criminal Court is written based on the philosophy that, in any area of law, knowledge should begin and end with statutory and case law authority, a principle that assures accuracy. But how do we become experts in criminal law when there is such an unwieldy bulk of information? We learn 20 percent of information that we need 80 percent of the time! 

    Every topic explored in this book is one that is essential to a criminal court practice. Each topic surveys the most imperative 20 percent, and generates guideposts to lend you to the remaining 80 percent. Whether a new attorney or an experienced practitioner, the wisdom necessary to be a great criminal lawyer is found within these pages.

    This book is not designed to be left on a bookshelf to collect dust, but to be carried in one’s briefcase or court-bag to serve as a quick reference for that 80 percent of information that remains the same trial-to-trial — defenses, questions of proper opening and closing techniques, voir dire questions, evidentiary foundations, etc. It serves as a complete, all-in-one reference source that serves as a 20 percent foundation that will grow your confidence and criminal practice to 100 percent of its potential.

    The Insurance Law Section’s 2019 CLE is premised on a “back to basics” concept to assist attorneys and insurance adjusters both new to and well versed in insurance law.

    Insurance law encompasses many issues and areas of practice, including whether a policy of insurance potentially provides coverage for a claim and disputes between third parties and individuals or entities listed as named insureds or identified as additional insureds under a policy.

    In addition to those matters, learn from exceptional attorneys as they share, explain and provide helpful practice information in the areas of commercial general liability insurance, excess and umbrella insurance, directors and officers insurance, errors and omissions insurance (malpractice insurance), medical health insurance, disability insurance, automobile insurance and homeowner’s insurance.

    The program also addresses issues concerning insurance carriers’ duty to defend and provides an excellent role play of an insurance coverage dispute.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about analyzing and handling insurance law matters, and is useful to attorneys from a wide range of practice areas.

    Fine-tuning the relationships between the law, attorneys, citizens, government and the Constitution can seem as if it requires that perfect pitch so few of us have. The maestros in the sound booth adjust the volume, tone, rhythm and other elements of music, musicians and instruments as they record.

    Similarly, attorneys work to adjust the sometimes-competing elements of the music of our law, government and democracy, leading to harmony or discord.

    This program presents a full-day’s concert of sessions dealing with the legal music of our lives.

    Topics include:

    • A view from the bench regarding Section 1983, government and citizen suits
    • Protecting voting rights and empowering citizens in environmentally vulnerable areas
    • Data privacy and legal ethics
    • Administrative searches and warrants
    • Injunctive relief when citizens participate in democracy

    When legal instruments require complex formatting, most Word users struggle to get the document to look the way they want.

    Users often describe it as a "wrestling match" or having to "outsmart the program." Some advanced features like automatic paragraph numbering, tables of contents, and tables of authority seem inaccessible or broken. Because legal users require so much of Word, they often feel extremely frustrated by it.

    If you’re sick of the struggle, this class is designed by a lawyer for legal users to master and control Word.

    Bring Your Laptop: We'll make the sample files we use in the exercises available in advance as a download so you can follow along with the exercises in class.

    Which Version of Word: The program covers Word for Windows 2019/Office 365, however, the manual included in the program materials covers Word 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and 365. Word for Mac 2011 and Word for Mac 2016/19/365 manuals are also available for download.

    This year’s program does a "deep dive" into two areas where the law and medicine intersect with even more complexity than ever before: payment for medical services rendered and the challenges posed by behavioral health and substance abuse issues.

    The morning session is devoted to a discussion of alternative payment models and related tax, insurance, and antitrust issues, as well as the legal issues created by, among other things, paying providers not to take care of patients.

    The afternoon session centers around the current status of 45 CFR Part 2, the intersection of mental health and substance use disorders, and the challenges faced by hospital counsel related to both, including involuntary commitment.

    An executive roundtable ties the two sessions together while highlighting other challenges facing the health care industry. Substance abuse credit is included.

    As in-house counsel, your legal knowledge and expertise is only one component of being a highly-successful legal partner. Your legal and business practical skills are equally paramount to your overall success at your company.

    This CLE concentrates on providing you with the skills necessary to excel at being not only a good lawyer, but a great business partner as well.

    The Corporate Counsel Section of the NCBA welcomes section members, as well as the many non-member in-house counsels across our state, to attend this all-day CLE event.

    Join us as we “take care of business” and learn from leading general counsels and other legal and business experts “how good lawyers become great business partners.”

    This six-hour CLE event, which includes one hour of substance abuse/mental health credit, offers an opportunity to network with fellow in-house counsel over lunch and during an extended networking break.

    Don’t miss out as we learn “how good lawyers become great business partners” by:

    • Contributing to a successful legal department and exuding executive presence as in-house counsel
    • Taking care of your company’s brand and formulating sound legal arguments in a crisis
    • Creating efficiencies in managing contracts and handling contract negotiations
    • Minimizing stress for yourself and your business partners while running productive meetings
    • Managing your workflow by utilizing the power of technology

    Corporate Counsel Section Pro Bono Cause 

    At this year's Corporate Counsel Section Annual Meeting, attendees are again encouraged to donate to the Corporate Counsel section’s pro bono cause. 

    As in prior years, the section is aiming to provide support to an organization that helps alleviate hunger from our communities. However, rather than bringing a non-perishable food item, we ask that each attendee donate (online or by check) to H.O.P.E. of Winston-Salem

    Our goal is to have 100% CLE attendee participation in this initiative, so please make any contribution that you can! Together, we can help reduce hunger for less fortunate North Carolinians. Click here to donate!

    H.O.P.E. (Help Our People Eat) of Winston-Salem was founded in 2013 by Hon. Ben F. Tennille upon his retirement from the bench as the inaugural judge of the North Carolina Business Court. Judge Tennille and his wife Marty, a pediatrician with a passion for child development, recognized that Forsyth County, North Carolina has the highest rate of food insecurity in the state and is among the highest in the country. Read more about this fantastic organization’s mission and vision here
