About HCBA's Law & Literature:

The HCBA's Law & Literature CLE series provide a unique way to earn special board credits, such as the 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.   

Space is limited. Advance registration is required.     

9:30 AM Elimination of Bias Session: the overall goal of the Eliminaton 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:
The Witness by Ann Petry
In the Garden of the North American Martyrs by Tobias Wolff

*Note: upon your completed registration, materials will be emailed to you for advance reading
