Why You Should Attend

Despite progress, bias continues to impact people in all areas of the legal profession, including judges, juries, clients, and attorneys. Implicit Bias refers to attitudes and stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which can include both positive and negative stereotypes, are often activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intent. Our everyday decision-making is unavoidably affected by implicit biases, stereotypes, and other types of cognitive biases. Identifying and addressing implicit bias becomes even more challenging when dealing with intersectionality. However, 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.

What You Will Learn

After completing this program, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize implicit bias in themselves, their workplace, and the courtroom
  • Understand why it is important to keep intersectionality in mind when addressing implicit bias issues
  • Learn and incorporate specific techniques that can interrupt implicit bias in courtroom settings

Who Should Attend

California licensed attorneys that require 1 hour of implicit bias credit, or any attorney interested in learning about how implicit bias and intersectionality plays a role in the legal profession.

Special Feature: The training will meet the additional 1-hour requirement that the CA State Bar now requires from CA licensed attorneys on implicit bias issues starting in January 2023.
