    Implicit Bias and Bias-Reduction Strategies

    Price: $19.99

    Having presented MCLE programs in the areas of "Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession" and "Diversity, Inclusion and Equity" for over a decade, attorney Steven A. Nielsen has witnessed the importance of these issue grow, along with the statistical data and measurement of progress. In this presentation, Mr. Neilsen focuses on "Implicit Bias," and the promotion of bias-reducing strategies to address how unintended biases regarding race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics undermine confidence in the legal system. Among specific Implicit (or "Subconscious") Biases which he addresses are "Ageism," and "The Halo Effect." He discusses the impact these biases have on the legal profession and society writ large, on individual lawyers and their practices, and scenarios in which they can impact the courtroom and the law firm workplace.

    Policing from Where we Are Today

    Price: $19.99

    The objective of this presentation is to identify and discuss key legal and social issues in the context of today's volatile society, with an emphasis on limitations on the use of force and legal remedies in response to police misconduct. The presenter discusses how current events give rise to cases in numerous legal areas, from Civil Rights violations, Constitutional Law, including freedom of speech and lawful (and unlawful) protests, and liability for damages from both protests and police misconduct. Moreover, the presenter discusses topical issues of vital importance, such as the ?defund? movement, which runs along a spectrum, from those in Minneapolis who would disband and rebuild their police department (on the theory that the current department?s culture is too pervaded by racism and violence), to those in New York City or Los Angeles who advocate reallocation of spending and reform of police practices. Ultimately these issues end up in Court, where lawyers must be leaders and help society solve these complicated issues. This program aims to increase awareness of the critical legal issues involved.

    Progress in Diversity and Inclusion in the Legal Profession

    Price: $19.99

    The 2020 Model Diversity Survey Report, released by the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, is the first ABA report on diversity, equity and inclusion in law firm practice, according to an ABA press release. The survey is based on three years of data. In short, the Report states that while more minorities are getting hired as associates, law firm leadership is mostly white and male because of a diversity ?bottleneck? and higher rates of minority attrition.

    In this program, attorney Steven A. Nielsen reflects upon what the Report means in terms of the lack of the progress it describes. The focus of this presentation, however, is to provide a long-range perspective on this important subject and to highlight progress which the profession has made. He offers information on new, innovative programs which have been developed to address the inequities outlined in the ABA report and in society at large, and concrete steps which can help Diversity and Inclusion issues to be successfully addressed in the law office environment. Mr. Neilsen's candid assessment of the data, coupled with a review of how new Diversity and Inclusion programs and educational awareness have helped the profession make progress, makes for an informative and stimulating presentation.

    Through the Smoke: Legal Trends and Gun Violence

    Price: $19.99

    We are experiencing an epidemic of gun violence in this country.

    The parents of a student killed in the 2018 massacre at Marjory Stone-man Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, the deadliest high school shooting in United States history, set up and tricked a former president of the National Rifle Association into giving a high school graduation speech defending gun rights in front of 3,044 empty chairs, one chair for each student who couldn?t graduate because they were killed by gun violence.

    A political stunt? Perhaps, yet it effectively illustrates the severity of the problem. It further invites us to examine the legislative solutions we ap-ply to those societal problems that impact us most. We are living through a stress test exposing flaws inherent to our system of justice. (We look to the law to fix the flaws!)

    With our time together today, we will examine contemporary legal trends in regard to the 1) problem related to Gun Violence, and 2) Legislative solutions in response to those problems, 3) Impacting the rights and remedies of so many, 4) Conclude: Take Away Observations) re: Impact on Practitioners.

    Unauthorized Practice of Law

    Price: $19.99

    The unauthorized practice of law, (UPL), is "engaging in the practice of law by persons or entities not authorized to practice law" and the State needs to control who holds themselves out as an attorney to give value to the licensing and ethics control entities such as the Bar Associations and Court systems. Tensions arise when consumers need certain services which they may believe are too costly if performed by a bona fide lawyer or firm. This course outlines those tensions, the balancing factors which certain states have used to address these issues and takes a close look at several situations in which the non-lawyer entities may pose a risk to the public, and where lawsuits have been necessary to limit or curtail these non-lawyer entities.

    Water Law: Water Rights, Droughts, and a Flood of Legal Issues Part II

    Price: $19.99

    After recent years in which records have been set for both rain and lack of precipitation, Environmental and Water Law expert Wes Miliband discusses issues which arise when both drought and climate change create conditions over which populations have little control. To help attorneys proactively recognize and address these issues so as to prevent both legal disputes and damage to people and property in the future, Mr. Miliband raises awareness of how, and where, such disputes may arise. He addresses the basic system of water rights, tribal, military and Federal rights, key cases, how local, state and federal water agencies work and long term creative solutions for an uncertain future, such as ocean winds, desalination and other sustainable techniques.
