Building an Inclusive Legal Workplace for 2024: Implicit Bias and Practical Debiasing Strategies

What does it mean to “think like a legal professional”? Many legal professionals worked hard to master legal principles, while also believing we are considering problems objectively and using only using analytic skills to make decisions with their clients. But are we really? Substantial research supports the finding that unconscious or implicit bias influences our decision-making skills – and legal professionals are no exception. Topics covered in this session included:

  • What implicit bias is – and how it affects the law and legal professionals.
  • Ways to recognize implicit bias in common interactions and its impacts on the legal profession and legal system.
  • How to combat implicit bias with research-based strategies to ensure a fairer profession and justice system.
