CCLI Board Members Present at MSBA New Lawyers Section
CCLI Board members (from left to right above) Camille Bryant, Nelson L. Peralta, Sophia Vuelo and Kate Graham presented a one hour panel discussion on overcoming barriers created by social and cultural differences at the MSBA’s New Lawyer Section December meeting. Kate moderated the discussion, and Camille, Nelson and Sophia, all skilled attorneys, shared their experiences and stories of working with clients and colleagues of diverse backgrounds.
According to one audience member, “I wish everyone could have heard this, not just lawyers….The panel gave concrete examples of how to work with clients and colleagues with different backgrounds.”
