Course Description

In this course, attorney David Graulich will discuss ways to reduce bias with better decision making. David will begin by explaining what bias is, and how bias in the legal profession affects society. He will discuss Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is the primary anti-bias weapon in the federal arena. Mr. Graulich will then talk about ways to "debias", as well as rules that have been put into place in order to eliminate bias in the legal profession. He will then explain what modern research tells us about bias. In this section, David will discuss logic v. emotion and he will cover two systems that we all utilize when we strive to make a decision, the "Automatic System" and the "Reflective System". David will finish by explaining how to apply what was learned during the course to the practice of law.
