North Carolina 3-Hour Ethics & Substance Abuse/Mental Health CLE Bundle

Add to Cart

Overview

In addition to the 2 hours of ethics credit mandated every year, North Carolina attorneys are required to earn one hour of CLE credit every 3 years dealing with Substance Abuse and Mental Health issues for lawyers.

If that's all the CLE you need to wrap up your requirements for the year, then this is the bundle for you.

We start with two of our newer ethics courses:  1) The Ethics of Diligence & Time Management (Billy Newman's fast-paced set of practical strategies for dealing one of the biggest frustrations of modern law practice -- time management, and the ethics hazards that can result from an out-of-control "to do" list), and 2)  Hot Topics in Ethics (a quick look at two trending topics in lawyer ethics - being the "fiduciary to a fiduciary" and the big uptick in ethics complaints arising out of a lawyer's inadequate legal research or deficient legal writing).

Then, our Substance Abuse/Mental Health segment takes an unusual approach -- Billy Newman draws on anecdotes from the Sherlock Holmes stories to inspire a fresh look at the mental health challenges of modern-day law practice and the steps we all can take to minimize the risks.

You can watch these courses as online videos, or if you prefer, download and listen to them as mp3 audio files.
