Understanding and Eliminating Bias (CD)


Self-study hours are logged by the listener and the one page list is kept in an MCLE compliance folder. The log requires a listing of each program title, the program's approved MCLE provider name, program length, and whether or not that program contains mandatory subfield credit (legal ethics, elimination of bias, or prevention of substance abuse.)

Participatory hours require a proctor (any adult who is not simultaneously using the same program for participatory credit) to complete and sign documents accompanying each participatory program. Those completed and signed documents are subsequently returned to Versatape and individual certificates of compliance are prepared and returned to the listener to be filed in a MCLE compliance folder. Versatape will also keep a copy of the certificates of compliance on file. If audited the State Bar will be looking for a copy of those completed certificates of compliance and a copy of the self -study hours log.

Note: Please note MCLE audio program hours listened to in excess of 25 hours in a 3-year compliance period cannot be carried over into the next 3-year cycle.

  1. Should state the subjects of discussion on the CD and upfront 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2018

    The session is a tag team effort, but you wouldn't know until well past the half way mark.

    The first speaker takes a while to get started. Later we are told that he was asked to "pinch hit" at the last moment. He does cover some valid points about bias among those who don't believe they are biased.

    In the last part, a woman talks about LGBT issues and history in the US and State Bar. She seemed to advocate rather than inform and let people come to their own conclusion. I was not expecting this second talk, as there was no indication of the subject matter being discussed in the CD title.

    I likely would not have purchased this product if I had known what the content was.
