North Carolina CLE Rules

Total Hours Required: 12

Ethics Hours Required: 2

Hours Earnable Online: 12

Compliance Date: December 31st


North Carolina allows all 12 hours of required CLE to be earned online through On-Demand online CLE or Live CLE Webcasts (or a combination of both).

Of the 12 hours required, 1 hour must be devoted to Technology Training (can be either an ethics hour or a general hour).

Also, in addition to the 2 hours of ethics credit required each year, North Carolina mandates that attorneys earn 1 hour of CLE every 3 years on the topic of Substance Abuse/Mental Health Awareness. (This triennial Substance Abuse hour is credited to the overall 12-hour requirement for the year, but not to the 2-hour ethics requirement.)
