Banner Year Ahead For CLE Books

Banner Year Ahead For CLE Books

The CLE Department of the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation is committed to providing

continuing legal education programming “for North Carolina lawyers by North Carolina lawyers.” To that end, 2016 promises to be a banner year for CLE publications devoted to North Carolina law.                      

Nine new books are already scheduled for release next year; there will probably be more.

“We are excited about the quantity and quality of the publications that will be released next year,” said Marisa Campbell, chair of the CLE Committee. “And we are always pleased to see North Carolina so prominently featured in the title and content of most of our books.”

The credit, she added, goes to the volunteers.

“The strength of our publications, much like the strength of our CLE programs, depends largely on the dedication of our members,” Campbell said. “They give freely of their time and expertise to produce materials that are indispensable for North Carolina lawyers.”

The publication schedule follows. All of these books will be available through the CLE section of the NCBA website. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Bonfiglio via phone (1-800-228-3402) or email (lbonfiglio@ncbar.org).
