Mental Health Diversion and Bias MCLEs Next Week
We are excited to offer 2 classes the second week of January to help you meet your MCLE requirements.
- January 9 – Jail or Treatment: Mental Health Diversion in Criminal Cases -There is a new law California that allows diversion in some criminal cases if a defendant suffers from a mental disorder. In June 2018, CA Penal Code 1001.36 went into effect. The law created a new pre-trial diversion program that is discretionary for a defendant charged with a misdemeanor or felony, and who suffers from a mental disorder that played a significant part in the charged offense. In this class, we will discuss how this new law works and how it may play out in the San Diego court system.
- January 10 – Eliminating Bias: Achieving Diversity and Inclusion (ELIMINATION OF BIAS) (North County) -This presentation covers the applicable laws governing bias and discrimination, theories of bias, and strategies for eliminating bias in the legal profession. Specific topics include: discrimination laws; theories of bias; examples of bias in the legal profession; and achieving fairness in hiring, retention, advancement, and termination. This is a DVD presentation by Louis P. DiLorenzo, Esq. It counts for participatory credit and will be repeated at the Downtown location January 23.
