Implicit bias – a form of bias that occurs automatically and unintentionally – has an impact on people across the legal field, including judges, juries, clients, and attorneys. Everyday decision-making is unavoidably affected by implicit biases, stereotypes, and other types of cognitive biases. As attorneys, it is imperative that we understand these biases and take steps to ensure they do not have unfair or harmful consequences. The training will tackle intersectionality around implicit bias, and how attorneys can address implicit bias issues within themselves and the courtroom setting.
- The attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner
- Recognizing implicit bias in ourselves, our workplaces, and the courtroom
- The concept of intersectionality, and why it is important to keep intersectionality in mind when addressing implicit bias issues
- Specific techniques that can interrupt implicit bias in courtroom settings
