Join LMA Phoenix for a CLE Program
"Ethics, Implicit Bias and the Practice of Law"

LMA Phoenix is excited to kick-off 2020 with an incredible Ethics CLE program presented by Alfred “Ray” English, Assistant Dean and Professor of Practice at ASU Law.

Invite your attorneys to join you at this lunch program on Wednesday, January 22 at the ASU Law School in Downtown Phoenix. Looking at law firm diversity from an innovative perspective, Ray’s presentation will first define implicit bias. He will explain the research that suggests implicit biases are wide spread, but that they can perhaps coexist with anti-racist and tolerant attitudes. As a group we will explore whether it is ethically condemnable to harbor implicit biases, as well as how to correct for it in ordinary activities, including how we practice and market law. Finally, Ray will discuss strategies to reduce the influence of implicit bias on our professional decisions and actions.

This CLE Program is tailored to lawyers and legal marketers. Lawyers will receive 1 Hour of Ethics CLE.
