    Strategies for Confronting Unconscious Bias in the Legal Industry

    1 PM EST

    Despite our best intentions, research shows we all have it -- unconscious, unintentional bias. Unconscious attitudes and beliefs are shaped by all kinds of influences -- some of which we would not agree with or accept on a conscious level. Yet, these unconscious thoughts influence decision-making and can have a profound impact in the workplace and the practice of law -- on retention; productivity; relationships with colleagues, clients, judges, witnesses and jurors; as well as people's careers.

    The key is to learn how to recognize our own unconscious biases as well as practical ways to interrupt those biases so we can make better decisions and serve clients more effectively. You will also learn how unconscious, unintended bias plays out in the legal profession, which is the first step toward advancing diversity in the profession. The American Bar Association has acknowledged the ethical implications of bias in its Model Rule 8.4(g) that addresses harassing or discriminatory lawyer misconduct.

    The course will be eligible for 1.50 Elimination of Bias CLE credits.

    Note: Online Registration will close at 10AM ET November 18. Anyone that registers afterwards with the ABA service center may not receive their confirmation email with their dial in instructions before the start of the webinar.
