½ hour of Elimination of Bias MCLE credit
The elimination of bias in the legal profession is a worthwhile goal in its own right, but the process also serves an important risk mitigation function. Law firms face regulatory and tort risk from a failure to address bias. These risks can be reduced through training and policy. This course offers some practical insights into the issue of bias from a risk management perspective.
You will learn:
- About risk management and how it applies to law firms, especially smaller firms
- How bias creates risk for the firm and the practicing attorney
- How to manage bias risk
