June 20: Seattle - Negotiating Justice: Advancing Racial Equity and Client Goals

One of the most challenging skills an attorney can conquer is learning to humanize their client and translating that practice into a successful negotiation of their client’s case. This CLE will focus on how to improve your awareness of the obstacles our clients face in their lives. You will learn how to negotiate your cases in a way that uses this understanding.
