In 2004, eight judicial districts participated in the Judicial District Professionalism Program, a joint effort between the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism (CJCP) and Lawyer’s Mutual Liability Insurance Company. As a part of the program, the CJCP has either the Chief Justice or the Chief Judge of the NC Court of Appeals attend.
The programs are for the local Bar and by the local Bar. The program requires a committee from the local Bar to design their own program and speakers, with input and materials from the CJCP and Lawyers’ Mutual, including information on how to start a local Bar Professionalism Support Initiative (PSI) program. Lawyer’s Mutual supplies the notebooks for all attendees. Both Lawyer’s Mutual and the CJCP pay for a luncheon for all attendees. In addition, other sponsors are encouraged to contribute.
The Judicial District Bar Professionalism Program is meant to serve as an event for the members to get together, socialize, and discuss professionalism issues that face their Bar. Each program qualifies for three hours of CLE credit, with no sponsorship fees. If a Bar wishes to add an hour of substance abuse/mental health CLE credit, the CJCP can arrange for this with the NC State Bar Lawyer Assistance Program.
Please call the CJCP at (919) 571-4762 if your district is interested in having this program.
