    Good advice on questioning the results of tests. Not as interested in hair morphology.

    Is the use of the words "negroid" and "mongoloid" necessary? This isn't meant to be a "politically correct" issue. These three categorizations of race are no longer anthropologically accepted, and the courts have sought to distance the judiciary from categorizations based on an anacrhonistic grouping of individuals based on perceived similar physical characteristics. Indeed, attempting to categorize persons into three, or in some instances four, "races" is a social rather than scientific construct. It detracts from the course which provides some decent information and sources to reference when arguing a case but spends too much energy on the more technical aspects of hair and not enough on the practical application of the growing body of scientific concensus regarding how toxicology results could be discriminatorily applied. As an aside, skipping over the aspect of things such as the presence of heavy metals (example taken from a slide) in hair is a disservice to criminal application of this information.

Session 3: Rulemaking: Governor Abbott’s Participation in the Process - Governor Abbott unilaterally asserts control over all rulemaking by state agencies. Such power is exercised wholly in private. Constitutional? Session 4: Introduction to the Office of the Governor’s Regulatory Compliance Division - The Regulatory Compliance Division conducts an independent review of certain state licensing agencies’ proposed rules that affect market competition. Authorized by the legislature in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision in North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. FTC, the division provides the “active supervision” needed over rulemakings so that state boards controlled by active market participants can invoke state-action antitrust immunity. Explore the background, procedures, and work of the division since its establishment in 2019.

    Good course with common sense approach.

    Well, that's 45 minutes I'll never get back. "Owls" and "the Diverse"? Really? We're supposed to overcome labeling and misconceptions by creating new labels? The presenters could have simply talked about -people and work, which would have made the presentation far more intelligible and useful, rather than falling back on jargon and the sort of ideas that a college sophomore might include in an essay on diversity. Or does simply adopting the right jargon make it possible for us to avoid both the topic of racism and the imputation of racism regardless of how we actually treat other people? Because I've been watching racist white people do that since the 1970s. By the way, there was one absolute howler that deserves to be singled out for discussion. Are "owls" truly to ask "the diverse" to tell them all about life as one of "the diverse"? This can be documented as having been tried over and over again since the 1960s with far worse than indifferent success. Some people are perfectly happy to have those discussions at some reasonable time. Others will make the perfectly reasonable response that it's absurd to make someone responsible for not only taking care of their clients and building their own career but teaching others things that seem perfectly obvious as well. In other words, the presenters are insisting that "the diverse" STILL have to work twice as hard as "the owls" in order to be considered just as good as "the owls". This presentation needs to be completely rethought and presented in a different way if there is to be any hope that the presentation will be effective.

    The session was very thought-provoking and useful, but it was largely geared to law firms. It would be helpful to note that in the description.
