Culturally Responsive Advocacy: A Toolkit to Support Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Your Administrative Law Practice [WEBCAST ONLY] 

15 févr. 2022

OBA Administrative Law PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)

In all aspects of your work as a lawyer – from working with clients, colleagues and others in the legal system, to preparing and presenting compelling legal arguments, to advocating effectively in a hearing - it is imperative that you understand culture and recognize its role. Join us to examine the concepts of culture, implicit bias and other essential ideas. You will learn about and explore skills to support greater cultural awareness for lawyers in all stages of administrative proceedings, including how to apply these skills to develop and effectively present a compelling case. Then hear from our expert panel as they share valuable insights on the challenges faced by marginalized communities in the administrative justice sector and the best practices you can adopt to help combat those challenges.
Our top-notch facilitators will lead you through this engaging program as you:

  • Consider the scope and significance of cultural difference & how it relates to the work of a lawyer
  • Examine the role of implicit bias, privilege and marginalization in legal processes and advocacy
  • Discuss strategies to interrupt implicit bias and strengthen your analysis and decision-making skills
  • Support the development of the skills required to create an inclusive and accessible hearing environment
  • Explore key tools for effective intercultural communication with clients and adjudicators

Register now for this interactive program to develop greater confidence and skills in navigating diversity, inclusion and equity challenges within the administrative justice sector.
