Ethics and Elimination of Bias Training.
AM Horizons Training Group
We are the leader in workforce diversity for government and educational institutions. We specialize in the best practices in areas of Equity for all, battling Micro-Inequities and increasing Discretionary Effort.
It is our aim to empower Attorneys, Social Workers, Law Enforcement Officers and Human Resource Managers to gain new knowledge and examine each of our implicit bias so that we can be aware of our personal/professional bias to eliminate the barriers that create discriminatory practices in our field of work, in the lives of our constituents and in society at large.
Preaching to the chorus
Preaching to the choir is a necessary activity. Some choir members don't know the song, others need help staying on key. So the choir must practice. The same hold true for those of us in the helping professions. We must expand our knowledge about different cultures, changing demographics and the shifts and trends occurring in the popular culture.

Why Ethics and Elimination of Bias Training?
Summary of CLE Rule on Ethics and Elimination of Bias
The Minnesota Supreme Court issued an order making ethics and diversity training mandatory for Minnesota attorneys. As of July 1, 1996, lawyers licensed in Minnesota are required to take three hours of ethics courses and two hours of elimination of biastraining as part of the 45 credit requirement to keep their attorney licenses up to date.
The Rules of the State Board of Continuing Legal Education incorporate the concept that there are now three subcategories of CLE: Standard CLE, Ethics/Professional Responsibility CLE, and Elimination of Bias CLE.
In order to be approved as ethics or professional responsibility under these rules, courses or sessions within courses must be at least 30 minutes, and must be separately identified as Ethics or Professional Responsibility.
In order to be approved as elimination of bias courses, courses or sessions within courses must be at least 60 minutes in length and must be identified as fulfilling the Elimination of Bias requirement, and must focus on issues in the legal profession and in the practice of law and not upon issues of bias in society in general.
