Every litigator has encountered a situation where they wanted to get insight from a judge as to how to handle a particular issue or an explanation as to why a judge ruled as he or she did.

"What am I supposed to do?"

"Why did you allow that?"

"What should I have done differently?"  

Whether the issue is dealing with unrepresented litigants, difficult opposing counsel, or simply navigating unchartered territory, there is no substitute for getting explanations and recommendations directly from the judges themselves.  

This program focuses on important, timely topics, and provide participants with unique access to panels and presentations of excellent judges from across the state.

The NC Bar Association's Bench/Bar Liaison Committee presents the 2014 View from the Bench CLE as a forum of practical instruction from our state's top judges, appropriate for both new attorneys and seasoned veterans, designed to improve the quality and efficiency of the courtroom experience in our state.

  • Sitting judges from our state trial, state appellate, and federal district courts will provide their insight into the challenges posed by pro se litigants generally and opposing counsel specifically when outside the presence of the court.
  • Sitting state appellate and business court judges will share their tips for more effective motions and brief practices.
