Dedicated to improving the quality of legal practice in Colorado's federal courts.
12 NOON-1:15 P.M.
Recruiting, hiring and supporting law students and new lawyers from underrepresented, under-recognized and marginalized groups can be done in a way that furthers such students’ sense of belonging. While legal offices cannot be expected to solve diversity, equity, and inclusion challenges , all members of the legal community can try to avoid repeating, or worse, increasing, isolation and alienation for such students and lawyers. With intentional, proactive measures, legal offices can create supportive and meaningful spaces for such students to flourish now and throughout their careers. This session, led by Alexi Freeman, Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Director of Externships, and faculty member at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, will offer a series of principles, tangible tactics, and best practices designed for lawyers, supervisors, recruiters, and other staff to consider and implement in order to best support such students and new lawyers.
2 General CLE/1.5 EDI credits approved.
