ABA Releases Book on Reducing Bias in the Courts

The ABA has recently released "Enhancing Justice: Reducing Bias," a bench book which examines the different approaches that can be used to lessen the impact of implicit bias in the courts. By bringing together a diverse team of authors, including judges, lawyers, social scientists, professors, and experienced trainers, the book seeks to help "break the bias habit" by increasing knowledge and awareness of implicit bias and showing how to improve understanding and practice of procedural fairness and of culturally competent communication across cultures. A reception to launch the book will be held in New York City on Thursday, August 10, after a full day of CLE programming focusing on the legal profession at the ABA Annual Meeting.
