Super CLE Week: Effective Strategies for Working with Low Bono & Pro Bono Clients
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

The Alumni CLE Series presents the Super CLE Week: "Effective Strategies for Working with Low Bono & Pro Bono Clients."

Lecture:
Twenty-five years after the Minnesota Supreme Court’s Race Bias and Gender Fairness Task Force report, we have come a long way—but as the legal market continues to evolve, new problems and challenges appear.  One of these challenges, as documented in the IAALS “Cases Without Counsel” study, is the pervasive and widening “justice gap” in which people in the middle 60% of the income spectrum end up representing themselves in court, largely because they cannot afford counsel.

This CLE is intended to alert lawyers that the “justice gap” is larger than they may realize.  We will discuss the reasons for self-representation and the consequences of self-representation; to remind them that self-represented litigants are more likely to face implicit bias and poorer outcomes than litigants represented by counsel; and to make them aware of ways to overcome their own resistance to serving clients in the justice gap.

The audience of lawyers will be invited to do an exercise that reveals how implicit bias works, and to explore their experiences with and biases about self-represented litigants. They will also be invited to explore what prevents them from representing “low bono” clients who earn too much to be income-eligible for pro bono work, but who cannot afford their regular rates.

Presenter:
Presenter Karin Ciano  is a lawyer, writer, teacher, and connector who believes that small law firms have the power to close the justice gap.  Since starting her own firm in 2011, Karin has informally mentored a number of new lawyers eager to hang their shingle.  In late 2016, after CCLI’s incubator launched and interim Executive Director, Virginia (“Ginny”) Bell, was ready to transition its operations, Karin was happy to start serving as CCLI’s acting Executive Director.  CCLI made it official in summer 2017.

A New Jersey native, Karin attended the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and obtained her law degree from New York University School of Law in 1995.  After several years’ experience as a commercial litigator in the New York office of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, Karin returned to NYU Law to teach in its innovative and respected Lawyering Program.  In 2003 Karin moved to Minnesota to clerk for Judge James Rosenbaum of Minnesota’s federal district court.  After Judge Rosenbaum’s retirement Karin clerked for Minnesota federal district court Judge Ann Montgomery and federal magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan.  After leaving the court Karin opened her own shop.  She now practices as Karin Ciano Law PLLC and is also of counsel to the probate-litigation boutique Mason & Helmers in Saint Paul.

Besides practicing law, Karin also writes and teaches. She writes the monthly “Legal Writing Notebook” column for Minnesota Lawyer’s discerning readers. She teaches the Solo Practice Residency seminar at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, which prepares third-year students to start their own firms in CCLI’s incubator.  Karin previously taught in the WRAP program at William Mitchell College of Law and taught contract drafting and Practice & Professionalism at the University of Minnesota Law School.  Karin regularly presents lawyer-education classes on sole practice, freelance practice, federal practice, and legal writing.

Karin is the Chair of the MSBA Solo & Small Firm Section, and serves on the Federal Practice Committee tasked with reviewing the local rules of Minnesota’s federal district court.  She volunteers with the Children’s Law Center, the Conflict Resolution Center, the Federal Bar Association Pro Se Project, and Volunteer Lawyers Network. In her spare time, she bikes and gardens.

Super CLE Week: Constitutional Issues Regarding the Trump Executive Orders
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

"Constitutional Issues Regarding the Trump Executive Orders."

Lecture:

During his first year in office, President Trump issued, or has been responsible for, four executive orders that have drawn significant public attention:  the travel ban, the sanctuary jurisdictions order, the transgender military exclusion, and the DACA repeal.  Each operates within its own subject-matter area, and each has raised a distinct set of constitutional issues.  The travel ban has been interpreted by reviewing courts as presenting Establishment Clause issues, the sanctuary jurisdiction order raises 10th Amendment issues, the transgender military exclusion raises equal protection issues regarding sexual orientation and identity, and the DACA repeal raises due process questions, as well as equal protection issues regarding ethnicity and national origin.  The presentation will address how courts have dealt with each of these issues, and suggest some unifying and concluding legal themes. The presentation will also feature appropriate opportunities for questions and answers with the participants.

Presenter:
Professor Anthony S. Winer

Presenter Biography:

Professor Winer teaches Constitutional Law, International Law, and other subjects related to each, at Mitchell Hamline, where he has been on the faculty for 27 years.  He was the first full-time law professor in Minnesota to teach a course in Law and Sexuality as part of the regular recurring curriculum.  He was one of the initial organizers of the Minnesota Lavender Bar Association, and was for several years a member of its board of directors.  During the era of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” restrictions on military service, he regularly spearheaded the efforts of the former William Mitchell College of Law to assure appropriate institutional responses to potentially discriminatory recruiting on campus.  He had a supervisory role in the legal work that supported the legislative repeal of Minnesota’s ban against same-sex marriage. 

He is the author of two books on International Law research, and has published numerous book chapters and articles on international law and constitutional law issues.  Many of his publications have concerned the law regarding LGBT persons.  He won the 2014 Annual Global Legal Skills Book Award for the publication of his textbook, International Law Legal Research.
