Jurors not only instinctively pick up on the way in which other attorneys, judges, etc. treat female litigators, but also often hold gender biases of their own, before ever setting foot in the courtroom. Magna Legal Services hosted a virtual CLE, examining the history of women in the courtroom with an emphasis on how past perceptions can influence jurors’ judgement of female attorneys in today’s world. Drawing upon data collected from various psychological research initiatives across the country, this webinar focused on the legal implications of the inherent implicit and explicit gender biases held by jurors. Strategies for combatting gender bias in the courtroom are also discussed.
