Thank you for your interest in On-Demand CLE presentations from Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers. This is a new program for LCL and we appreciate your feedback.
LCL is required to keep a registration list which must be provided to the State Board of Continuing Legal Education upon request. Thus, we request that attorneys refrain from sharing their access with other attorneys. As long as each attorney registers individually, LCL will be able to maintain a proper registration record.
If you would like to show an LCL on-demand program in your office, please contact us. We’d welcome the chance to present it live. Non-attorney law office staff are welcome to view and attend LCL programs.

Elimination of Bias Credit
Minnesota Credit Approval Status: 1 Hour Elimination of Bias Credit approved through 1/14/2024. 433081.
The primary focus of this program is to understand and demonstrate how implicit bias discussions in the legal profession must include mental health (including substance use) and stress issues. This program will begin with a general understanding of the concept of implicit bias and discuss how implicit bias stands in the way of lawyers seeking the help they need for mental health and stress issues. While it’s hard for anyone to ask for help, there is a double stigma for those already in underrepresented groups. This program will address the challenges faced by lawyers, judges, and law students when asking for help for mental health issues. It will also address the relationship between mental health issues and diversity and inclusion. The program includes a discussion of strategies to overcome these issues.

An eating disorder is not a lifestyle choice — it is an illness that can be deadly and often hides in plain sight. An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder, and one-quarter of law students screen positive for eating disorders. Lawyers are likely impacted at rates higher than the national population, as studies consistently show that lawyers are twice or more likely to be impacted by mental illness and substance misuse than non-lawyers. Learn about eating disorders, how they impact law students and lawyers and their professional obligations, treatment and recovery, how to recognize signs and symptoms, and how you can communicate with and help someone who may be struggling with an eating disorder.

As lawyers, our duties under the Rules of Professional Conduct underpin our service to clients. We are accustomed to quiet withdrawals, transfers of representation, and serving clients well, even when clients are at their most difficult. We work in the midst of looming deadlines, mountains of cases, negativity, and other stressful conditions. Our duties as advocates frequently put us in the line of fire with difficult parties and opposing counsel, while requiring us to maintain the integrity of the profession and respect the rights of others. Learn how stress, negativity, and ethical duties interact and how we can better manage our practice, our lives, and our ethical obligations.Register for this course on-demand.

Life and work during the COVID pandemic have been challenging for many people, including legal professionals. These challenges are multifaceted and, at times, seemingly unrelenting. Changing circumstances give rise to unique stressors, including those experienced by clients and parties. As the profession adjusts, those quick decisions we must make may be based on implicit biases and assumptions. The pandemic has affected people differently. For some, it exacerbated an underlying health or addiction issue, for others, a new problem developed. For many in our profession, stigma continues to prevent them from seeking the help they need. This program will address the profession’s changing landscape, explore the effects of implicit bias and stigma, and offer perspectives and tools for coping and thriving.
