The Charlotte School of Law said Wednesday it has launched a Center for Compliance and Ethics that will offer an online certificate program designed for attorneys as well as others without professional compliance training.
The Corporate Compliance Certificate program, accredited by the Compliance Certification Board, was designed and is taught by compliance experts from the Charlotte business community, including Charlotte School of Law faculty, the school said in a statement.
Upon completion of the program, participants can sit for any of the certification exams offered by the CCB, the school said.
The compliance center was also made possible via a collaboration between the law school and Michael Volkov, a compliance expert and chief executive officer of the Volkov Law Group LLC. He will advise the center’s curriculum and strategy and offer insights through blog posts, webinars and symposium content, the school said.
“Charlotte is the second-largest financial center in the country, and also home to energy, healthcare, higher education, and entertainment businesses. There is significant demand in Charlotte and elsewhere for compliance professionals,” said Chidi Ogene, the school’s president.
The Charlotte School of Law opened in 2006 as the state’s first for-profit law school. It’s owned by the InfiLaw System, which also owns Florida Coastal School of Law.
