    North Carolina Bar Association Presents LIFT Seminar 2018: The Education Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) has for several years offered the Legal Information for Teachers (LIFT) Program to provide a fun and informative seminar of legal issues to benefit teachers in their daily profession.  The NCBA will offer this program to teachers across the state on August 3, 2018 at the North Carolina Bar Center, (8000 Weston Parkway, Cary, North Carolina 27513). There is a registration fee of $25.00 to attend the seminar.  Attendees will receive materials from the conference to present to their respective school districts for potential CEU credits. At LIFT, teachers have the opportunity to interact with and learn from several highly esteemed attorneys from across the state of North Carolina.  During the seminar, several of these attorneys are volunteering their time to better inform teachers of education laws and how they impact teachers directly.  The program has received rave reviews in the past.  Among the topics covered this year will be special education, First Amendment issues, crowdsource fundraising, and more!  To register:
