Program Description: Although we may not be cognizant of it, each of us brings unique, diverse life experiences and perspectives to our legal practices. This is a good thing, but it can also bring with it stereotypes, biases and preconceptions that take away from our ability to best serve our clients and the profession. This program seeks to provide a safe space for participants to identify, explore and “unpack” our implicit or unconscious biases in an effort to ensure that we approach our clients and practices in the most fair and impartial manner possible.
