Culture and practice of law: dealing with differences
As the Columbus area continues to grow in diversity, attorneys are faced increasingly with dealing with cultural differences in legal situations. The Juvenile Law Committee and Susan Eisenman have designed “A Whole New World: Immigration Law—It’s an issue for all of us” to assist family, juvenile, probate, and general practitioners with cultural issues that impact their practice of law.
To be presented on Friday, November 30 from 1:30 p.m. – 4:45 p.m., this seminar features speakers from various groups that work with immigrants in the Columbus area as they share their knowledge about such subjects as culturally sensitive communication, resources that are available to immigrant populations, and changes in national immigration law. Speakers include Roberta F. Garber of Community Outreach Partners; Leslie Powell Ahmadi, Ph. D., Cross Cultural Educator,Institute for Human Services; Brian Hoffman, Muchnicki Law Office; Kevin L. Dixon, Ph.D., ADAMH Board of Franklin County; Angela K. Plummer, Columbus Refugee and Immigration Services; and Oscar A. Budd, Perez & Morris.
