Implicit Bias Training for Legal Services Attorneys: Basic Concepts

This course will highlight basic concepts in understanding implicit bias, particularly in the legal services context. The more we’re aware of our implicit biases and how they automatically influence our decision-making, the more we can check ourselves and make more conscious decisions that aren’t based on bias. 

For those of us who practice poverty law, one of our goals has to be to seek to not only economic justice for our clients, but racial justice and equity and in to do that we must understand implicit bias and be cognizant of our own biases.
