Cape Fear Community College will offer a new series of continuing education courses designed for attorneys. 

The first course, “Finance for Lawyers:  Understanding, Improving, and Protecting Your Bottom Line”, will be held on May 4 in downtown Wilmington. This course will be taught in a classroom. Students will be able to ask questions and actively participate in the class.

The course is the first in a series of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses developed by Mitzi Kincaid, attorney at law, Kincaid and Associates, PLLC.  The participants will earn 8 total hours of CLE credit:  6 hours of general credit, 1 hour of ethics, and 1 hour of anti-substance abuse information presented by Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist and CFCC Continuing Education instructor, Brian Williamson.

North Carolina attorneys are required to obtain 12 hours of Continuing Legal Education courses per year.   CLE’s allow participants to ask questions and actively participate in the learning process; in this case –  learn how to make their business more profitable.
