Description

Today’s political climate is shaping everyday decisions, and as attorneys, we have a responsibility to be aware of and consider the differing views in today’s political landscape. This one-hour course will cover key issues to keep in mind 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 worldview influencing judgment, we’ll discuss: 

  • Creating mutual understanding with your clients and properly framing issues
  • Ways to help heal our communities 
  • Understanding the danger of false consensus
  • Understanding the legal environment of your own practice
