This recorded seminar features a timely and powerful presentation on combating Islamophobia featuring the Executive Director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network (AMEN), a new initiative of the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS).

Following is a panel discussion with practicing attorneys that addresses issues of bias based on culture or religious practice or perceptions of cultural or religious practice more broadly. Within the practice of law, whether it is in a courtroom setting or in communication with a client, what are some potential issues that arise when working with clients from different cultural and religious backgrounds? Panelists also discuss cultural and religious considerations that come up and relate to the diversity of the legal profession.
