Course Description

Attorney Steven A. Nielsen offers a fresh look at bias in the legal profession. Does a mere study and rote following of state bar rules address the larger issues? Mr. Nielsen notes that, in general, the reasons for our bias problems have been a taboo subject. He offers a candid assessment of the nature of bias and discrimination and how they have evolved in society and throughout history. He poses the question: is it realistic to expect a complete ?Elimination? of bias in the legal profession, or does it make more sense to understand the forces at work in human nature and to implement common sense steps to ?Reduce? bias and discrimination in the law office environment.
