Studies have shown that implicit bias is something that affects everyone to some degree. So what steps can legal professionals at all ranks take to make the justice system fairer and more equitable?
In this episode of the Modern Law Library, the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles speaks with Judge Bernice Donald of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and professor Sarah E. Redfield of the University of New Hampshire School of Law about Enhancing Justice: Reducing Bias, a book published by the ABA.
Redfield edited the collection—which contains contributions by more than 30 leading social scientists, lawyers, academics, trainers and judges—and co-wrote a chapter with Donald. They discuss the latest research on bias and give concrete tips for how we should confront bias going forward.
