This program offers outstanding opportunities to grow professionally, network with others in your field, and attend substantive breakout sessions designed to educate you and energize your career.

At this advanced level, one-day program:

  • Learn about important new and recently changed laws including the Uniform Power of Attorney Act, the North Carolina Identity Theft and Protection Act, and immigration law
  • Learn what potential employers are looking for when they search for you on social media - this session provides a beginners guide to what not to put online when you're looking for a job and hear some of the craziest stories from a lawyer who’s seen it all
  • Learn about important developments in civil procedure through case law that has developed since the 2015 amendments to the North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure - hear about what’s “hot” and procedural traps for the unwary
  • Learn the basics of trust account transactions, how to prepare reconciliations and identify potential fraud in real estate transactions - review practice tips and recent rule changes, as well as gain a better comfort level with the North Carolina State Bar’s Random Audit Program
