Examining & Undoing the Power and Privilege of Practice (May 2019)


Presented in partnership with WSBA Civil Rights Law Section

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
-Lilla Watson

For attorneys serving underrepresented and marginalized communities and attorneys working with racially and linguistically diverse client populations, it’s critical to examine our biases and privilege and learn tools to disrupt systems of oppression to allow us to bring our full humanity to this work.

This training is designed to help you understand power and privilege dynamics in our work with diverse client populations by 1) acknowledging the impact of implicit bias individually and structurally; 2) examining implicit bias in the civil rights context; and 3) applying mindfulness techniques to reclaim health and wellness. Whether you work in the private or public sector, this training is for you.

Back to Examining & Undoing the Power and Privilege of Practice

This CLE aims to refresh our humility in practice; acquire pragmatic tools to avoid the savior/missionary model of attorney-client relationships; and understand different models of practice to facilitate structural and systemic change. The ultimate goal is to provide a pragmatic approach for attorneys who are ready to transform their orientation to their practice in order to empower clients experiencing racism and other institutionalized discrimination.

The CLE is facilitated by JustLead Washington, a statewide capacity-building organization committed to helping equity & justice-committed advocates and organizations develop their equity and leadership skills.
