The North Carolina Judicial College provides education and training for judicial officials, including judges, magistrates, and clerks of court. It includes training for new officials, continuing education seminars, and online offerings such as webinars and self-study modules. Much of the work of the Judicial College is done in partnership with, and is supported by, the Administrative Office of the Courts.

The Judicial College is part of the UNC School of Government, and many School of Government faculty members coordinate and teach in its educational programs.
