CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association, are pleased to present a special online CLE program designed to inform attorneys on how to recognize and eliminate bias in the legal profession and society. This panel will delve into issues of implicit bias as it relates to gender and the LGBTQIAP community. The presentation will review the ethical considerations of the ABA's newly adopted Model Rule 8.4(g) for anti-discrimination and define implicit bias and its impact. The panel will also provide best practices for navigating implicit bias and progression towards acknowledgment and elimination of implicit bias in the legal profession. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on November 16, 2016. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.
