Dispute Resolution Neutral Cultural Competence | What Does this Mean?

1.0 Ethics CLE

The Rule 114 Code of Ethics states that “A neutral shall serve as a neutral only when she/he has the necessary qualifications to satisfy the reasonable expectations of the parties.” The 1997 comments include the following additional insight; “A person who offers neutral services gives parties and the public the expectations that she or he is competent to serve effectively as a neutral.” Building on last year’s presentation that raised the question as to whether “whiteness is embedded in mediation,” this year, Dr. T. Anansi Wilson and Professor Sharon Press will offer their thoughts on how competence must include cultural competence and then explore what that means as applied to ADR neutrals.

Unbundled Practice | Ethical and Practical Considerations in Providing Limited Scope Legal Services

1.5 Standard and 1.0 Ethics CLE Credits

In 2018, the HCBA/MSBA/RCBA joined together to spearhead the Minnesota Unbundled Law Project to provide potential clients with easily accessible referrals to attorneys interested in providing unbundled/limited scope representation through a central website, mnunbundled.org. Potential clients select the relevant area of law and county in their search parameters. Attorneys receive referrals from the project website and agree to report back on the outcome of their referrals.

This session satisfies the training process to be eligible to participate on the roster. In addition to the training, participants will be provided with a Handbook containing helpful tools for implementing this type of practice area in an efficient and ethical manner.  Topics covered in this CLE include ethics and insurance, developing an effective business model and practical tips on how to build an efficient, lucrative practice that includes limited scope services.

When Your Client is Impaired

1.0 Ethics CLE Credit

Lawyers often see clients who appear to be suffering from substance misuse, addiction, or other impairments.  While it is not our job to diagnose, what is our role, responsibility, and opportunity? How do our biases govern our actions and behaviors?  What if the issue is not with a client but with a colleague?  The answers are seldom simple. This program will provide an ethical framework for lawyers facing these questions in addition to practical guidance and resources.
