This event is part of the Barrister's Breakfast in support of Joyce Preschool, and is co-sponsored by The Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association, The Hennepin County Bar Association's Diversity Committee, and The Minnesota State Bar Association. 

You can register separately for the Barrister's Breakfast here.   

The CLE will consist of a panel discussion led by attorneys with experience in diversity and inclusion initiatives. The panelists will address what D&I initiatives are currently in place in law firms and corporate legal departments, as well as addressing what successes (or not) have been observed in recent years. The CLE will inform attendees of current challenges and legal trends, but most importantly will provide guidance on some best practices that firms of all sizes can utilize.
