The Joint Committee on Fighting Implicit Bias in the Justice System, with representatives from the JD, Section on Litigation and the Criminal Justice Section, is focused on promulgating the initiatives of the Enterprise Fund Grant awarded to publish a book on fighting implicit bias in the justice system. Continuing the efforts of the Task Force on Perceptions of Justice, the Joint Committee works on promoting fairness and improving the administration of justice by bringing judges, courts, lawyers, and academia, and community groups together on a national scale to advance citizen understanding and support for the justice system on the one hand and better administration of justice for all on the other.
