Pending Elimination of Bias Credit!

One of the most important aspects of being a lawyer is the opportunity each of us has to interact with so many different types of people across generations, cultures, gender, race, ability, and class.  Understanding our own unconscious biases as lawyers in any category can significantly impact how we practice law in the new "normal."  In this session, we will focus on identifying our own biases and on how Minnesota culture impacts how we interact with clients, colleagues, and each other.
