Today’s political climate is shaping everyday decisions, and as attorneys, we have a responsibility to the awareness and consideration of the differing views in today’s political landscape. This one-hour course will cover key issues to consider when working in the legal space, and litigating in a divided nation. From accepting the effects of cultural changes on communities to recognizing the nature and sources of “world-view” influencing judgement, we’ll discuss:
- Creating understandings with your clients and framing issues
- Ways to help heal our communities
- Understanding the danger of false consensus
- Understanding the legal environment of your own practice
