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.

NLRB Update

VA CLE Requirements Credit Type: General

Running Time: 1 Hours, 0 Minutes

VA CLE Course Details:

Labor law is currently in the news. High profile campaigns and issues involving many businesses we frequent are in the public eye. Because labor law has a broader scope and greater impact than many practitioners may realize, this program will address recent developments at the National Labor Relations Board on a variety of issues. The focus will be on several areas, including case rulings, expanding remedies for unlawful conduct, hot topic issues, as well as potential change to come through legislation, policy, and regulations. Even if you do not regularly practice before the National Labor Relations Board, this program provides insight on issues on NLRB's agenda which touch upon areas practitioners may have considered to be exclusively regulated by state or federal employment law.

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.
