(Washington, D.C., March 5, 2019) -- The Humanist Legal Society has launched a new program linking its members to humanism-related continuing legal education (CLE) courses in partnership with the online learning center Humanist Learning Systems. The first course, entitled “Ending Harassment and Retaliation in the Workplace,” is available now via the Humanist Legal Society website. Through its partnership with the Humanist Learning Center, the Humanist Legal Society plans to make more courses available in the future, as well as to provide a platform through which Society members themselves can create courses and make them available to members.
“This is an exciting new opportunity for humanist lawyers to share valuable knowledge and perspective,” said Legal Society President David Codell. “Our online platform will be a useful resource for humanist attorneys seeking to learn or to teach.”
Humanist Learning Systems has had courses accredited for CLE purposes in both California and Florida, and numerous other jurisdictions accept CLE courses from out-of-state. Accreditation for courses in additional jurisdictions is expected soon.
The Humanist Legal Society promotes and protects humanist values in the legal system by providing support and networking opportunities to lawyers, judges, legal academics, law students and paralegals throughout the United States and by fostering development of humanism in the law.
Founded in 1941 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the American Humanist Association (AHA) works to protect the rights of humanists, atheists, and other nontheistic Americans. The AHA advances the ethical and life-affirming worldview of humanism, which—without beliefs in any gods or other supernatural forces—encourages individuals to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
