    The 3D’s in “Gig Economy”

    DAMAGES, DISRESPECT AND DISCRIMINATION

    This program will provide current and useful information to insurance staff counsel and outside tort practitioners on a damage issue seen more and more in today’s transforming economy; the measure-ment of past loss of income and future earning capacity suffered by those who are self-employed in today’s “gig economy.” Uber and Lyft drivers, freelance web designers, and the like present new chal-lenges in presenting and defending lost income and lost earning capacity claims.

    The second section of our seminar will address issues of discrimination in modern legal practice, dis-cussing the twin questions of how practitioners can avoid unconscious bias towards others and how they can best deal with bias and discrimination when it is directed at them.

    The program will also feature a panel discussion on a day in the life of a litigator to the law students of Mitchell Hamline.

    Friday, September 15, 2017

    1:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Mitchell Hamline School of Law

    DESCRIPTION

    Implicit Bias and Ethical Considerations in Pro Bono Legal Contexts CLE
    8:45 am - 11:30 am at Dorsey & Whitney LLP
    To register click here

    Elimination of Bias


    For the first hour, Ryan LeCount, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Hamline University, will analyze implicit bias and its potential manifestations in transactional legal settings. Attendees will learn about concrete approaches they can take to overcome their implicit bias as well as how they can address implicit bias when clients or colleagues direct it against them.


    Dr. Lecount's teaching and research focus on issues of identity and power, especially race and ethnicity in the United States. Dr. Lecount will deliver an hour long program on his fascinating and critical work and how it may be applicable to transactional legal advice in our brief advice and full representation settings.


    Ethics

    One of the most valuable contributions to the legal profession a lawyer can make is devoting time to handling cases pro bono.

    This session will walk participants through several quandaries that may arise during a pro bono case and will involve a discussion of the best ethical and most practical responses for pro bono professionals and volunteers.


    The Ethics portion will be presented by Craig Klausing, J.D., Senior Assistant Director of the Minnesota Board of Professional Responsibility. Mr. Klausing, an attorney with over two decades of experience in professional responsibility investigation, prosecution, supervision, and continuing education, will deliver an hour long program on professional responsibility issues related to providing pro bono legal services.

    The CLE concludes with an opportunity to meet LegalCORPS staff and sign up for a specific opportunity or case. It is also a great opportunity to meet with other volunteers. Coffee and light breakfast served.

    Garrison Keillor in “An Evening for Mexico” in St. Paul, MN, September 22

    Garrison Keillor, author, storyteller and creator of the Prairie Home Companion, will be performing “An Evening for Mexico,” Friday, September 22 at Bethel University’s Benson Great Hall in Arden Hills, Minn. 

    The performance begins at 7:00pm, and will feature stories about growing up in Minnesota, about Lake Wobegon, family and fatherhood.  Keillor has presented this show to capacity crowds across the U.S. over the past year.  This is his first and only scheduled performance of the show in the Twin Cities.   

    The event is a fundraiser for Juvenile Justice Advocates which works to reform the juvenile justice system worldwide.  All proceeds from the September 22 show will go towards its work in Mexico. 

    "We're putting on a benefit, which I promise will be fun,” said Keillor.  “You'll be in a crowd of people who will stand and sing all the songs we know by heart and sing them acapella in four-part harmony. That alone is worth your while, and you'll also have the satisfaction of doing a tangible good thing rather than just complaining about the world today, which is what I do.  But not on the 22nd.”

    Juvenile Justice Advocates was founded in 2013 by Garrison’s cousin and human rights attorney Douglas Keillor, who received a Fulbright-García Robles Fellowship to research excessive juvenile detention in Mexico City in 2012. As a result, the Mexico City Superior Court invited him to help implement a pretrial release program, which grew into Juvenile Justice Advocates.

    “There are 13,000 children currently in prison in Mexico, nearly half of whom have never been convicted of a crime,” said Douglas Keillor.  “They suffer tremendously and are twice as likely to commit suicide or drop out of school compared to kids in alternative programs. Three quarters are abused or beaten by officials.”  The proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards creating community-based alternatives to detention for vulnerable teens.   

    Reserved seating tickets to “Garrison Keillor in An Evening for Mexico” are $69 for main floor and $59 for the balcony.  Premium tickets at $159 include a reception next to Benson Great Hall before the show and an opportunity to meet Garrison Keillor.  Student tickets are available for $34-$44 with a current student ID.

By matching law students and attorneys by area of interest, the Mentorship Program provides students with the resources to succeed as law students and future attorneys in the Minnesota legal community. First, the MHBA Mentorship Program provides students with the opportunity to learn more about the Latino/a legal community in Minnesota. Second, the valuable relationships that are formed will help students in their present and future job searches. Third, students are afforded the opportunity to have their resumes and writing samples reviewed by their mentors. Lastly, students have the option of having mock interviews in preparation for job interviews.
