North Carolina State-Specific Component Instructions

The North Carolina State-Specific Component is an online course, covering the following six subject areas of the law:  Estate Planning & Administration, Criminal Law, Family Law, Real Estate, Torts, and Workers’ Compensation.  The course contains video presentations for each subject area.  Each video is approximately one hour in length.  Each subject area video presentation must be reviewed in its entirety.

Upon completion of each subject area video presentation, you will be presented with three (3) quiz questions.  You must answer all three questions correctly in order to advance to another subject area.  If you do not answer all three questions correctly, you will be required to review the subject area again in its entirety and then successfully complete a new three-question quiz.

Each subject area video presentation is divided into two sections of approximately 30 minutes each.  The progress bar for each section will indicate your position in that specific portion of the video.  You will not be able to move backward or forward within the video via the progress bar; however, you may rewind to the beginning of the 30-minute video section being reviewed by clicking on the “Rewind” button at the bottom of the screen.  You may also pause the video presentation at any time during viewing.

Each subject area video presentation contains a substantial amount of information.  The Board encourages all applicants to take notes during the presentations and to take advantage of the option to pause the videos to do so.

Each subject area includes a Closed Captioning option that can be toggled on and off by clicking the “CC” button at the bottom of the screen.

Portions of the course (instructions, menu options, navigation icons and quiz questions) are screen reader friendly.  For applicants requiring additional special accommodations due to a visual impairment, please contact Rhonda Price at the North Carolina Board of Law Examiners at rprice@ncble.org.

If you choose to exit the program while viewing a subject area video presentation and then continue at a later point, you will be given the option to return to the section you were reviewing previously.  Please note, however, that upon return, the program will play from the beginning of this 30-minute section.

Once you have successfully completed all six subject area video presentations, you will be presented with a “View Certificate” button.  Click on “View Certificate.”  You will then need to enter your name and click on the “Print Certificate” button.  Please print two copies of this Certificate.  You will need to submit one copy to the North Carolina Board of Law Examiners.   You should retain the other copy for your records.

Please be advised that you may neither provide nor receive any assistance in the completion of the North Carolina State-Specific Component Course.  You are also prohibited from disseminating the link provided to you by the Board of Law Examiners for access to the North Carolina State-Specific Component.

Once you have successfully completed the course, in addition to submitting the Certificate of Completion, you will also need to submit an “Applicant Certification of No Assistance” form and an “Applicant Certification of Nondissemination of State-Specific Component Access Link” form.  These forms are available on the Board’s website.
