An ON-DEMAND CLE program:
Bias in the Courtroom: Juror Perceptions of Gender
2.0 CLE (Elimination of Bias) credits approved.
MBCLE event code: 207163
Topics Covered Include:
Juror biases can play a role in any case on many levels. Being aware and adjusting for these biases can make a case. In this CLE we seek to answer the taboo questions of:
• How do jurors see women in the courtroom?
• Are they viewed as equal to their male counterparts?
• How you can identify a biased juror?
• How can women litigators best present a case so any biased jurors concentrate on the evidence and not the presenter?
Our program will include a panel discussion featuring top woman litigators and a judge, all of whom are also past HCBA presidents! Hear about their experiences and the unfortunate reality of bias in the courtroom. Get real advice to help you overcome juror bias that could impact your case.
