Law-Related Education

Statement of Purpose: To educate and empower North Carolina teachers, students and general public by providing civic and legal educational resources, programs and competitions.

Law-Related Education encompasses the educational outreach efforts of the North Carolina Bar Association. Conducted through the LRE Department under the direction of Diane Wright and the LRE Advisory Committee of the NCBA Foundation, the widely acclaimed public service initiative was launched by the NCBA in 1998.
