CLE Podcast: $10

The 2011 program shown on this page is no longer eligible for CLE credit. If you are a Minnesota attorney needing elimination of bias CLE credit, you can take my 2014 Elimination of Bias Podcast which has been approved for Minnesota elimination of bias CLE credit.

This program has been approved for Wisconsin CLE credit as follows: 1.0 credit of Repeated On-Demand credit between the dates of September 3 and December 31, 2011.

Note: Even though this program was originally presented for Minnesota Elimination of Bias credit, this online program is not eligible for Minnesota credit. I do have a number of low-cost options for Minnesota attorneys to earn their two required Elimination of Bias credits. These include live programs and telephone conference calls. In addition, Minnesota attorneys living and working outside the state may satisfy this requirement by viewing the video version of this program, which I can make available. For full details, please visit my main CLE page.

This program was originally presented as a telephone conference call on May 25, 2011. This audio program runs approximately one hour. Click Here to View the Course Description.

Program Description

Elimination of Bias: The Rules & An Ongoing Process (presented by Richard Clem). This program was originally presented to meet the Minnesota "Elimination of Bias" CLE requirement, but may also be taken for general CLE credit in Wisconsin and other states. We'll start by looking at the rules governing bias within the legal profession, which is a subject covered by both the Minnesota General Rules of Practice, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and similar rules in other states. We will then see how well we are collectively doing as a profession and legal system in abiding by those rules. We will do so through the eyes of participants at a series of community dialogues at which community members were asked to describe their experiences and discuss ideas for advancing racial equality and fairness in the courts. All participants are welcome to share their insights.

The program is presented by Richard P. Clem. He has a B.A. in history from the University of Minnesota, and a J.D., cum laude, from Hamline University School of Law. He has been in private practice in the Twin Cities for over 20 years. His reported cases include: Asociacion Nacional de Pescadores a Pequena Escala o Artesanales de Colombia v. Dow Quimica de Colombia, 988 F.2d 559, rehearing denied, 5 F.3d 530 (5th Cir. 1993), cert. denied, 510 U.S. 1041 (1994); LaMott v. Apple Valley Health Care Center, 465 N.W.2d 585 (Minn. Ct. App. 1991); Abo el Ela v. State,468 N.W.2d 580 (Minn. Ct. App. 1991).
