If you’re a government lawyer or a lawyer whose practice intersects with the government, then there is one CLE you cannot afford to miss this year: the NCBA’s Nov. 16-17 CLE entitled “The Only Constant is Change: 2017 Legislative, Executive and Judicial Updates.”

Let me give you two reasons why you need to sign up now, if you aren’t signed up already:

First, the CLE features an all-star cast of speakers from all three branches of government.  These speakers include Supreme Court justices, Court of Appeals judges, and the recently retired Speaker Pro Tempore of the North Carolina House of Representatives.  Simply put, there is no more qualified group of individuals than these current and former public officials to speak about the sweeping changes that our state government and local governments have experienced in the past year.

Second, these all-star speakers are prepared to share their candid, unfiltered thoughts on the most important issues of the day.  Absolutely nothing is off-limits.  We will cover the separation-of-powers disputes between the governor and the General Assembly, the friction between the General Assembly and local governments, recent legislation aimed at the judiciary and many other hot topics.  What is more, our speakers have vastly different perspectives, which ensures that you’re bound to receive a combination of useful information and controversy that will be well worth the discounted price of admission of $285 for Government & Public Sector Section members—a great deal for nine credit hours.

Again, you don’t want to miss this CLE.  To make it easy on you, here’s the link to register online.

On behalf of the section council, I look forward to seeing you there.
