Raleigh Law Center


In November of 2016 Attorney Evonne Hopkins taught a continued legal education, CLE, seminar for new family law attorneys through the N.C. Bar Association. Continued Legal Education is required of all attorneys throughout the State of North Carolina. The CLE was structured in a trial advocacy format. Attorney Hopkins and other veteran family law attorneys conveyed their wisdom and knowledge in the area of family law to many new family law attorneys emerging in the practice area.
The CLE focused on trial practice and procedure. The veteran attorneys worked with the new attorneys to develop skills in their practice concerning opening and closing statements, cross examinations and the procedure for entering exhibits into evidence during a family law trial. The new attorneys learned several procedural rules and many effective practice skills for conducting a family law trial.
Attorney Evonne Hopkins is committed to passing her skills and knowledge of the area of family law on to new attorneys in the practice area. Attorney Hopkins works to educate all lawyers in the area of family law and is dedicated to engaging and learning from her peers in family law.
