Online Trust Account Management CPE Course Available Free to Certified Paralegals
North Carolina State Bar Certified Paralegals can now access two online, interactive, one-hour trust account management continuing legal education courses (which also qualify for continuing paralegal education/CPE credits) on the North Carolina Bar Association’s website. The two courses, the product of a joint project of the North Carolina State Bar and the North Carolina Bar Association, provide the most current explanation of the management duties for a lawyer’s trust account, and each one-hour course 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 course includes great content and helpful resources and is available, through the financial support of the Board of Paralegal Certification, free of charge to North Carolina State Bar Certified Paralegals until further notice. These high quality online trust account management courses were sponsored in part by Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company and Old Republic National Title Insurance Company.
