What is Implicit Bias and its Socioeconomic Impact on the Legal Community?

Join members of the judiciary and law firm partners in a compelling, interactive training on the challenges legal professionals face dealing with persons in a global society. This training program will be an advanced class on how to interrupt implicit biases, its sub-categories, and its socioeconomic impact on our legal community. 

In our daily work, as legal professionals  we are held to the highest standard of conduct. To meet that standard, we are called upon to address biases that we have, which may not be explicit, but subtle, and nuanced. In our class, we will learn about strategies to help interrupt biases that are not simply based on race, gender, or gender orientation.
