This lecture missed the mark for me. I understand that expert witnesses may well have biases. I would be surprised if they didn't.
I was hoping to hear suggestions about uncovering bias in judges and jurors -- e.g., studies show that those who subscribe to "Time" magazine probably will look unfavorably on claims being made by non-white litigants, etc -- and, better still, advice on ways to address it. That doesn't seem like too much to ask of a lecture titled "Bias in the Courtroom." Unfortunately, there was little such content.
