Implicit Bias, Personal Reflections, and Your Ethical Duties
(3.0 Ethics Credit Hours, including one hour of professionalism for those states with such requirements) 

Presented by the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal Education Program; cosponsored by all 20 D.C. Bar Sections 

This course will explore the concept of implicit bias and research that focuses on uncovering pervasive unconscious preferences.  The course also will describe how people automatically process information, how that leads to stereotyping and prejudice, and how implicit bias impacts behavior.  Experienced and seasoned attorneys will discuss several ABA model rules as well as the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct that relate to implicit bias and behavior, such as competence, client confidences, client communications, technology, and workplace interactions.
