Connecting the Dots: New Laws and New Ways of Doing (2021 Administrative Law and Government & Public Sector Sections Joint Program)


"[I]n order for us to truly create and contribute to the world, we have to be able to connect countless dots, to cross-pollinate ideas from a wealth of disciplines, to combine and recombine these pieces and build new castles." — Maria Popova

We all have to be able to connect the dots between new laws and initiatives, regardless of the type of law we practice or if we are in the government, private or public service sector.

Content for new laws and initiatives come from the General Assembly, local governments, occupational licensing and our North Carolina communities. Learn why you need to know about re-imagining emergency response, community policing and decriminalization — even if you're not in criminal law practice — and why election law practitioners aren't the only ones who should know about elections, redistricting and legislative changes.

Then hear about hot new laws from the General Assembly in areas as different as remote notary and ABC law, and how they affect you. Connect the dots between these on-the-surface disparate topics and increase your potential for creativity in your legal work. As Steve Jobs said, "Creativity is just connecting things."
