This program will review the ways in which Pennsylvania law schools have responded to national calls for racial equity in our legal system by implementing implicit bias and diversity/inclusion courses and programming into their curricula.
Establishing anti-bias education as a central tenet of law school training equips law students with the ability to combat the biases that permeate our legal system to the detriment of clients, attorneys, and court users from vulnerable communities. Ethically responsible law schools help their students analyze and address systemic racism, both within our justice system and within society writ large. Similarly, such educators also assist students of color in their career development and ability to advance in the profession.
Please join us for this session as we review the specific commitments that Pennsylvania’s law schools have made to center their pedagogical methods on an anti-bias perspective so that the Commonwealth’s legal community and system more consistently achieve equitable results.
All attendees will receive the course materials as a digital book. The materials are not for sale.
