The HCBA's Law & Literature CLE seminars provide a unique way to earn your ethics and elimination of bias CLE credits. Led by experienced facilitators, these popular CLE programs use short articles and works of fiction as a springboard for active discussions on legal ethics and bias. Stories will be sent to you once you register and must be read in advance.   

Choose the morning program for the Ethics discussion, the afternoon session for Elimination of Bias, or sign up for a whole day and save on registration. Space is limited. Please no walk-ins, advance registration required.   

1:30 PM Elimination of Bias Session: the overall goal of the Eliminator of Bias program is to prompt discussion among participants about the ways in which and the extent to which attorney speech and conduct can be viewed by others as indicating some degree of bias, prejudice, or insensitivity on issues of racial fairness and equality. Additionally, the program will involve a facilitated discussion and thoughtful exploration by participants of a number of topics which bear on the racial sensitivity of attorney speech and conduct.
*Stories for the Elimination of Bias portion include:
Good Will by Jane Smiley
Sonny’s Blues by James Baldwin 

*Upon your completed registration, materials will be sent to you for advance reading
