The goal of this session is to explore the lawyer-client relationship with a focus on the role of race, class and culture.  The session will look at the nature of discrimination and how culture operates on the cognitive, affective, and behavior levels in order to increase our own cultural literacy and empathy in order to address and eliminate bias experienced by minority and foreign-born clients (and advocates) in legal counseling and representation.
