The CLE Speaker Series is a legal education program focused on a variety of newsworthy business and litigation topics. Specialty credits in the areas of competence, elimination of bias, ethics and implicit bias also will be offered.
What does it mean to “think like a lawyer”? Many lawyers have worked hard to master legal principles, and we believe we’re considering problems with objectivity and using analytical skills to make decisions with our clients. But are we really? Substantial research supports the finding that unconscious or implicit bias influences decision-making – and lawyers are no exception. In this session, you’ll learn:
- What implicit bias is and how it affects the law and legal professionals
- Ways to recognize implicit bias in common interactions and its impacts in the legal profession and legal system
- How to combat implicit bias with research-based strategies to ensure a fairer profession and justice system
This session will grant you 1.0 specialty credit in the area of implicit bias. Credit will not be granted for on-demand viewing. Cooley LLP is an approved provider, and can provide credit in CA, CO, IL, NY, PA and TX. Cooley LLP is a sponsor, and can apply for credit in OH, VA and WA. Credit in other jurisdictions may be available via reciprocity. This program is ideal for members of CA MCLE Compliance Group 3 (N-Z). If you have specific CLE credit questions, please contact Cooley’s licensing and compliance team.
Please note, CLE credit can only be offered to those who have attended the live webinar. On-demand viewing does not qualify for credit.
