ECSU is one of five Historically Black Colleges and Universities benefiting from a $2 million Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant awarded to North Carolina Central University's School of Law. The program, Technology Assisted Legal Instruction and Services (TALIAS) is a live, interactive, videoconference series which originates at the NCCU School of Law and is broadcast to participating host sites such as ECSU. As a result of this videoconference technology, residents near Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A&T University and Winston Salem State University will also view the seminars at the same time.

The free segments are not only informative, but they save local citizens the time and cost of commuting to attend workshops in person.

he goal is to provide low-income residents within North Carolina insight into various clinics at the NCCU School of Law. The project provides legal guidance and training to residents that could include exorbitant paperwork and procedures associated with the legal processes that could otherwise be turned away by other legal agencies. This program also provides students at the four participating universities a glimpse of the topics NCCU Law School students are being prepared to handle as future attorneys.
