The West Virginia University College of Law is assuming exclusive management of the legal education program for lawyers in the state.

The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals requires West Virginia lawyers to earn 24 continuing legal education credits every two years. Until this month, the College of Law and the West Virginia State Bar worked together to provide the program.

College of Law Dean Gregory W. Bowman says the state bar supports transferring the program entirely to the college.

The university says the program offers live courses, multimedia seminars and online credit for more than 2,200 lawyers from West Virginia and 20 other states.
