Legal Learning Never Stops

Carolina Law’s Office of Continuing Legal Education offers year-round, affordable, and engaging CLE opportunities for lawyers to fulfill their CLE requirements each year.

Our goal is to schedule a variety of programming that covers topics that are timely, interesting, and thought-provoking. We engage leading experts and legal scholars to address these topics, so you are informed on up-to-date laws, cases, and trends in practice.


The annual CLE requirements in North Carolina are 12 hours of approved CLE. Of these 12 hours, two must be in the area of professional responsibility or professionalism or any combination thereof, and effective in 2019, at least one hour shall be devoted to technology training. If a lawyer takes more than the required 12 hours in a calendar year, up to two additional hours of professional responsibility and up to ten additional hours of general education may be carried over to the next calendar year.
