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 and address implicit bias within themselves, in their law offices, and in the courtroom;
  • Learn how the most well-meaning person can unwittingly allow unconscious thoughts and feelings to influence seemingly objective decisions;
  • Recognize the psychological dynamics in areas that affect lawyers in their everyday practices;
  • Learn how to alter and improve conditions of decision-making into effortful, deliberative processes so biases are less likely to translate into behavior; and
  • Much more!
