You Can’t Change What You Can’t See: Can the Rules of Professional Conduct Improve Our Vision and Help Us Overcome Implicit Bias Through Cultural Competency?

Presenter: Aviva Meridian Kaiser, State Bar of Wisconsin Ethics Counsel

As lawyers we are a public citizen with a special responsibility for the quality of justice. We have a duty to cultivate knowledge and employ that knowledge in the reform of the law.  We also have a duty of competency. In this presentation, we will explore whether our duty of competency includes cultural competency and learn about some specific examples of cultural competency.  We will also explore how our other duties under the Rules can help us improve our vision, to help us see what has been unseen, and change what needs to be changed.  Please join me as we examine our role as a public citizen with a special responsibility for the quality of justice.
