Diversity and Confirmation Bias



Presented By:



Linda Rothnagel


Prairie State Legal Services





The course looks at implicit bias, in particular implicit racial bias and


its role in the legal system -- that is, its potential impact on all of the


players from client to attorney to witnesses, jurors and judges.


The course uses two exercises to help participants consider their


own unconscious biases. The course then uses a small group


discussion format to engage participants in looking at the pervasive


impact bias has across sectors -- education, medicine, employment


and criminal justice. The course also includes a brief discussion of


confirmation bias and first impression bias, and the ways in which


those biases can exacerbate and reinforce the impacts of implicit or


unconscious bias, as well as impact attorney/staff hiring processes.


Finally, the course introduces some possible approaches to mitigating the


impact of bias.
