Attorney Licensing

Every person employed by the University of North Carolina or any of its constituent institutions to serve as a lawyer for the University shall be licensed to practice law in the State of North Carolina at the time that the person is employed. If a person is licensed to practice law in another state, but is not licensed to practice law in the State of North Carolina, the person may be provisionally employed conditioned on the person’s obtaining a license to practice law in North Carolina within one year after the date of the person’s initial employment. The President is authorized to make an exception to this requirement if the particular position for which the person is employed requires that the person offer advice and counsel predominantly in areas of federal law.
