Actions by the U.S. Supreme Court and North Carolina’s judiciary, legislative and executive branches have dramatically transformed election and campaign finance law over the past several years. As a result, the conduct of North Carolina’s political campaigns and elections are permanently altered.

This program examines these changes and what they mean for the future, equipping you with the knowledge to execute the following skills:

  • Instruct your political, business and individual clients on permissible issue advocacy, election and campaign practices, and on guarding against the opposition’s actions
  • Properly advise your clients on complying with new campaign and reporting landscapes
  • Understand North Carolina’s major election law changes and important 2018-2019 court decisions
