Free Webinar – Just Mercy and Access to Justice: Illuminating Bias, Confronting Systemic Racism, and Doing the Hard Work that Needs to be Done (CPD 283)

October 14, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm CST

Qualifies for 2 CPD hours, all of which qualifies for Ethics
Just Mercy brings to life the powerful and thought-provoking true story of newly-minted lawyer Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battle for justice on behalf of innocent people wrongfully convicted. With its honest portrayal of the toll that this kind of work takes on a lawyer, the film also provides a profound opportunity to consider how lawyers can (a) develop greater resilience in the face of adversity, and (b) develop a sustainable passion for doing meaningful work to provide greater access to justice for the underserved.
What you’ll learn:
  1. Identify implicit biases and understand how they operate, as well as the settings and circumstances in which they are more likely to show up
  2. Recognize the hallmarks of systemic racism, and commit to the path of pursuing anti-racism, instead of staying silent and thereby compounding existing problems
  3. Employ practical tools and strategies for confronting instances of bias and systemic injustices or inequities
  4. Take practical steps to help provide meaningful access to justice for the chronically disadvantaged and marginalized
  5. Understand the concept of vicarious trauma, and how to develop effective habits and commitments to sustainable and effective self-care and well-being, no matter what type of law or in what settings they practice
ReelTime CLE’s Michael Kahn, JD, LPC will provide practical tips and strategies for engaging in this gut-wrenching work without burning out in the process.
