Commission, PA Bar Association Jointly Administer CLE Program on Innovative Anti-Bias Programming in PA Law Schools

On October 31, 2022, the Pennsylvania Bar Institute collaborated with the Commission and the PA Bar Association (“PBA”) to administer a CLE program, entitled “Innovative Anti-Bias Programming: A Curriculum for Our Times for Law Students and Law Faculty.” Executive Director McCormick moderated the program, which was organized in response to the Commission’s publication of its anti-bias in legal education booklet. The program featured presentations from several distinguished legal scholars on topics such as intersectionality, race consciousness, and building structures in law schools and the legal profession that embed and support systemic equity. Because the program was well-attended, the Commission intends to work with the PBA to organize a program sequel that educates practicing lawyers on the practical implications of the concepts described above.
