BEYOND DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
What is Implicit Bias and its Socioeconomic Impact on the Legal Community?

Join members of the judiciary and law firm partners in a compelling, interactive training on the challenges legal professionals face dealing with persons in a global society. This training program will be an advanced class on how to interrupt implicit biases, its sub-categories, and its socioeconomic impact on our legal community.

In our daily work, as legal professionals we are held to the highest standard of conduct. To meet that standard, we are called upon to address biases that we have, which may not be explicit, but subtle, and nuanced. In our class, we will learn about strategies to help interrupt biases that are not simply based on race, gender, or gender orientation.

A reception will be help immediately following the program. Special thanks to our cosponsors, Clark Hill PLC and the American Bar Association’s State and Local Government Section.

Program will be held at Clark Hill PLC 130 E. Randolph St., Suite 3900 Chicago, IL 60601

We've been following the ongoing efforts to settle the Clean Water Act case involving the County of Maui with some amusement. Why, you ask? Part of it is that we like municipal law. Perhaps sad. But true. But we're amused mostly because the case's current posture illustrates the dual principles...
