Blackstone’s Ghost: Law & Legal Education in North Carolina, presented by John V. Orth, William Rand Kenan Jr. Professor of Law

Ever since its publication in 1769, Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England has been an authoritative source on the common law. Studied by generations of North Carolina lawyers, it was assigned reading for the state bar examination for over a hundred years, continuing well into the twentieth century. Blackstone remains foundational for North Carolina property and criminal law, although his influence is now mediated through academic treatises and judicial precedents.

One hour of continuing legal education credit is approved with the N.C. State Bar and instructions will be provided on how to apply for reciprocal credit in other states.

Childcare provided at a nominal fee during CLE and State of the School. Contact Kelly Mann at or 919.445.0170 for details and to make your arrangements.
