Members of the North Carolina State Bar and certified paralegals can now access part 2 of an online, interactive, one-hour trust account management continuing legal education course on the North Carolina Bar Association’s website. The program, a joint project of the North Carolina State Bar and the North Carolina Bar Association, provides the most current explanation of the management duties for a lawyer’s trust account, and satisfies the provision in Rule 1.15-2(s) of the Rules of Professional Conduct requiring anyone with trust account signatory authority to complete a one-hour trust account management CLE course. Each one-hour program includes great content and helpful resources and is available free of charge to North Carolina State Bar licensed lawyers until February 2018, and until further notice for certified paralegals. These high quality online trust account management programs were produced by the North Carolina Bar Association and the State Bar and are sponsored in part by Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company, and the Board of Paralegal Certification.
