    What's LAUNCH for Law Students: Generation RISE about?

    How do you use the tools of interrupting bias and cross-cultural competency to build better teams, improve communication with clients, and effectively deliver on the promise of justice for all? In this interactive 60-minute course, law students will learn about cultural competency and how to navigate multiple identities.

    Why is it difficult to successfully communicate across differences? What biases and discomforts do we have? And why is conflict not always a bad word?

    Students will learn five steps for effective cross-cultural communication and reflect on how to put those rules into place in interactions with law schol peers, workplace colleagues, and attorney supervisors. Students will then dive into law school and legal workplace scenarios where cross-cultural conflict can arise and learn how to be an upstander in every situation.

    This is the work of inclusion and it's time to get to work.
