Event Information

The CLE is provided free of charge for paid members of the DCBA. This membership is not the same as your mandatory dues payment of $75 to the Fourteenth Judicial District Bar. New members may join the DCBA and participate in the event.

While attendance at this event is included in the cost of your dues payment, all members who attend the CLE Event will receive an invoice for $3/per hour of instruction from the NC Board of CLE.  Those who prefer not to join the DCBA may pay $30/ hour of instruction to the DCBA, plus the $3/hour CLE fee stated above. Payments are due the day of the event. 

For headcount purposes (seats, coffee & snacks) you must register in advance for the morning and afternoon sessions which you plan to attend.  You may also register separately for the Ethics/Professional Responsibility hours if you are unable to attend the remainder of the sessions in which these hours are included.  

CLE Credit Forms will be provided to each participant on the days of the Event. Members will use these forms to sign and certify their attendance at specific sessions. Forms will be collected and certified by the Registrar.  Credit will be requested on your behalf for the sessions you attended. 

Lunch is "on your own," and there are many restaurants nearby. However, if you prefer not to leave the facility during lunch, meals are available on site.
