CHARLOTTE, N.C.—A proposed amendment to state bar rules would make North Carolina only the second state in the nation to require annual technology training for attorneys. The N.C. State Bar is pursuing a requirement that would mandate one hour of mandatory technology training for lawyers as part of the annual 12-hour CLE requirement.

Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Mark Henriques, who chairs the N.C. State Bar’s Ethics Committee, discussed the proposal with Bloomberg Law.

Henriques said “attorneys must have some understanding about how technology is affecting their practice.”
