Course Description

Length: 1h 6min    Published: 4/2/2014    
Unconscious bias plays a role on how we organize and interpret the world. But if left unchecked, such biases can - and do - have significant consequences in the practice of law. We must understand our biases, and the vulnerability we have to be influenced by cognitive biases, in order minimize the harmful effects of biases. In this program, expert attorney and author Amy Oppenheimer will help viewers do just that, covering topics such as: the forms of unconscious bias; the impact bias can have on the legal profession, the IAT and what it can teach us about unconscious bias, and the risks of confirmation bias.
