Racial Trauma in Communities and Individuals | Increase Your Awareness - Increase Your Effectiveness

Providing competent legal representation to all clients, including pro bono clients, goes beyond mastering the substantive law and administrative procedures. A fully proficient attorney meets the client where they are at and understands racial trauma and challenges that black and indigenous people of color (BIPOC) face in the US legal system and society at large. Join us for a question-and-answer session with Resmaa Menakem, Minnesota resident, national speaker, and author of My Grandmother’s Hands, on the topic of pro bono representation within the realm of transformational change and understanding racialized trauma. Hamra Ahmad, Director of Law & Policy at HerJustice, will follow with a presentation that aims to provide practical tools for lawyers to address challenges faced by people living in poverty and to recognize the strengths and positive attributes that clients bring to the attorney-client relationship.  The panel will be moderated by Sharon Sayles Belton from Thomson Reuters.

This CLE is approved for credit through December 3, 2023.
