Eleventh Judicial Circuit CLE

Understanding our Clients Better: Cultural Competency in the Legal Profession

A meaningful attorney-client relationship is built on communication and understanding. The attorney-client relationship is increasingly cross-cultural and there is often a gap to bridge between attorneys’ life experiences and those of our clients. Cultural competency improves the attorney-client relationship and experiences and, as a result, case outcomes. This seminar will discuss cultural competence, addressing appropriate techniques and ways to practice in a culturally sensitive manner.
