If you are newly admitted to the Bar, please join us October 9-10 at the North Carolina State Bar in Downtown Raleigh for two days of exciting networking opportunities, earning your necessary CLE credits and experiencing some of the fun that Downtown Raleigh has to offer. As with all of our CLE events, this program will be FREE for our members! If you do not live or work in Wake County and are therefore not eligible for WCBA membership, the cost is $150.
