The Appellate Practice Section of the North Carolina Bar Association is planning its annual CLE for June 2021.  The Section’s CLE committee is currently assembling the program for the CLE.  In the interest of making the program as relevant and actionable as possible for members of the Section and the bar, the committee invites your input on potential topics and speakers.  If you have suggestions about topics that you would like to see covered or speakers you would like to hear from, or if you are interested in presenting on a particular topic yourself, please contact the co-chairs of the CLE committee—Jonathan Ellis ( and Erik Zimmerman (—who would welcome your ideas.
