In 2016, Florida became the first state to mandate technology training for lawyers when it adopted a rule requiring lawyers to complete three hours of CLE every three years “in approved technology programs.”

Now another state has moved a giant step closer to following in Florida’s footsteps.

The proposed amendment now goes to the North Carolina Supreme Court for approval.
