The last two programs meet the "Learning Goals" for Minnesota Elimination of Bias courses: The program will run sixty continuous minutes, will relate directly to the practice of law, and is designed to meet the first and third learning goals for elimination of bias courses:
1. To educate lawyers about the elimination of bias or prejudice in the legal profession, in the practice of law, and/or in the administration of justice; ...
3. To educate lawyers about the problems identified in the Supreme Court�s Race Bias and Gender Fairness Task Force Reports, as well as in other studies, reports or treatises which describe bias and prejudice in the legal profession, in the practice of law, and/or in the administration of justice.
We will begin by referencing the Supreme Court's 1993 report on the elimination of bias in the judicial system, and we will also look at how both the Rules of Professional Conduct and the General Rules of Practice require us as lawyers to avoid bias.
Then, we will look at how well we are doing in meeting these requirements, as seen by various communities, including communities of color. In particular, we'll examine the suggestions made by members of the public at community dialogues held over the past three years by the Supreme Court's Racial Fairness Committee.
There will be opportunities for participants to discuss these suggestions, and to offer our own suggestions on how we can
fulfill these professional obligations.
This will be a live telephone conference call CLE. The speaker, Richard Clem, will be speaking live to teleconference participants from St. Paul, Minnesota. Upon registration, you will be given the telephone number to dial, and an access code to enter. This will be a toll-free number from the United States. Participants outside the United States will call a U.S. phone number in the 713 area code. You will also be e-mailed a copy of the course materials. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions during the conference call. In addition, it will be possible to send written questions to the speaker via e-mail, and these questions will be addressed during the call.
When registering, please provide the phone number from which you plan to call. There will be an automatic list of participants generated based upon Caller ID, and this list will be used to verify attendance. If you need to call from a different telephone, please inform me after the program so that I can verify attendance. A certificate of attendance will be e-mailed after the program to verified attendees.
All programs will be presented live by Richard P. Clem, who 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.
