Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias, Ethics
We all know---or should know---what “bias” and “implicit bias” are, and as lawyers and judges we certainly know we should act in an unbiased way. The real question is, do we act in an unbiased way and what happens to us when we don’t?
This round table discussion for experienced attorneys will teach the tools to recognize and overcome implicit bias and prejudice. It will focus on the acts, both unwitting and purposeful, of lawyers and judges that have landed us in trouble in the courts, in our cases, and with the ethics committees, and exactly what punishment we can expect for this behavior.
