MSBA Immigration Law and AILA Co-Sponsored CLE


Dealing with Displacement

This innovative program will use two short stories to facilitate discussion of ethnic and racial bias, prejudice and insensitivity in the legal profession. We will examine some of the ways in which the norms, values and experience of non-Caucasians affect their view of the fairness of our legal system, and we will consider the impact of our own misconceptions and stereotypes. There will also be opportunities for participants to discuss their observations and experience handling immigration cases. The program is designed to prompt self-reflective learning through interaction with your peers. Participants prepare for the program by reading the stories, which will be mailed to registrants prior to the session.


Timothy Baland, Literature for Lifelong Learning
Tim Baland has facilitated dozens of Literature for Lifelong Learning programs. He has done programs for Judges in three states as well as programs for lawyers, doctors, architects, corrections' personnel, court administrators and other groups. His Literature for Lifelong Learning programs involve a discussion by participants of professional practice and professional responsibility issues, with an emphasis on the moral and ethical choices and difficult decisions which individuals must make in their professional lives. Baland, who recently retired after twenty-two years of service as a District Court Judge in Minnesota, has also served as an International Judge for the United Nations Mission in Kosovo.
