Presented by the ISBA Standing Committee on Racial and Ethnic Minorities and the Law



Being conscious of our own bias matters.


Most of us are not aware that we harbor subconscious associations towards others based on characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, age, and appearance. Such attitudes and stereotypes find their way into law offices and courtrooms every day, often resulting in disparate treatment toward others, as well as to oneself. Only by becoming more aware of these “hidden” biases can we begin to correct them. Attorneys with all levels of practice experience who attend this seminar will be better prepared to:

  • Recognize implicit bias in themselves, their workplace, and the courtroom;
  • Learn how to ensure that one’s personal biases do not unfairly impact the outcome of the representation of clients;
  • Recognize the psychological dynamics in areas that affect lawyers in their everyday practices;
  • Learn from specific examples of how implicit bias and cultural awareness can be used to the advantage of clients, especially in  litigation; and
  • Much more!
