Gender Issues in The Courtroom San Francisco
An American courtroom is, by design, free of bias. Women in the legal profession, however, face challenges not present in the experience of their male counterparts. In an attempt to understand gender bias and it’s impact in the courtroom, this program will include a discussion about the psychology of gender stereotyping and explore identifying, understanding and counteracting personal biases be it from clients, the court, jurors, colleagues or opposing counsel.
This program will explore how implicit gender bias may drive decisions behind what roles women lawyers and experts play and presents challenges to the success of women lawyers. The program will include practical discussions led by attorneys who have thousands of hours of courtroom experience. This program, in its inaugural outing, will feature discussions of issues that women lawyers face in the courtroom, in depositions, in client meetings, and beyond.
