Description

Have you been hearing about implicit bias and wondering what that means and if it affects you? Do you question whether the legal profession truly upholds justice and fairness for all? Maybe you’re just wondering what all the hullabaloo is about. In any case, this CLE is for you. Together we will explore the origins of bias, define implicit and explicit bias, look at ways that bias has impacted the legal profession, and define the causes of action arising from bias.
