Add to Cart

Overview

* Note:  This 12-Hour On-Demand CLE Bundle is very similar to our other "12-Hour General Practice On-Demand CLE Bundle," except this version includes an hour of SUBSTANCE ABUSE CREDIT.  (Remember - North Carollina attorneys are required to earn at least one hour of approved "Substance Abuse/Mental Health" CLE credit EVERY 3 YEARS.)

This is a new collection that features eleven of our newest courses (each course is about 1.2 hours long)!  Earn a full 12-hours of North Carolina CLE credit with this bundle, including the 2 hours of ethics and the Technology CLE credit you need each year, along with the Substance Abuse/Mental Health CLE credit you must earn every 3 years!

From practical tips on preparing your witnesses for Trial Testimony, to Recent Developments in Federal Law for 2020, to Non-Compete & Non-Disclosure Agreements, and so many other courses from both the litigation and transactional sides of law practice -- this bundle includes 11 different courses (totaling 12.5 hours of North Carolina CLE credit).

Other courses include Billy Newman's surprisingly interesting (and relevant) review of what every general practitioner needs to know about copyright and trademark law -- as illustrated by recent high-profile cases involving famous people in Recent Headlines in Intellectual Property Law.  Billy also offers insight into two rapidly emerging issues in law practice -- Online Defamation and Ephemeral Evidence (dealing with electronic communications that are programmed to disappear automatically -- think Snapchat or Signal messages), which also qualifies as North Carolina Technology CLE credit.

Other speakers provide an overview of what your business clients need to know in order to avoid problems with Immigration Law.  And then there are two of the interesting ethics courses for which Barristers is famous.

If you would rather hand-pick the individual courses in your On-Demand CLE Bundle, you can create your own Custom Bundle and choose from our growing library of individual courses!   Just go back and select "Build a Custom Bundle" (rather than clicking simply "On-Demand Bundles").
