Description

Every attorney regardless of gender must have an equal opportunity to advance their career in the legal profession. However, the legal profession has a history of gender bias against women and recent surveys and statistical studies indicate there is still gender bias in our profession.

In this presentation, attorneys will learn to identify both implicit and explicit gender bias in the legal profession by reviewing how Hollywood depicts women attorneys on television and at the movies. The presentation will also offer attendees suggestions to recognize and combat implicit biases.  

To learn to recognize implicit gender bias, we will review film clips of award-winning movies selected by lawyers in two "best lawyer movie" polls conducted by the American Bar Association in 2008 and 2018.

Please join us for this unique and entertaining presentation.
