Walk-Up/On-Site Registration

The registration desk for the Festival of Legal Learning opens at 7:30 a.m. on both Friday, February 13 and Saturday, February 14. Due to the popularity of Festival and space constraints within the Friday Center, on-site registration is strongly discouraged. Please note: there is a set schedule for on-site registrants, with all courses taking place in the Grumman Auditorium. You do not have a choice in what courses you can take, but you will receive the CLE credits that meet NC State Bar's annual requirement.

NEW! Download Your Materials Ahead of Time

Your Festival materials and evaluations will be available for download before the conference. Save them onto your electronic device and avoid carrying around a heavy binder! Two weeks prior to the conference you will receive an email reminder so that you can download all the presentation materials onto your laptop or tablet directly. (Downloading FAQs PDF)

***Printed materials WILL NOT be provided.***
