Our legal system is built upon an inherent and overarching assumption of
equality under the law, and a denial of equal justice to one is a failure for
all. Recent events have exposed the reality in our society that the aspiration
of complete equality often falls short, sometimes with tragic consequences.
Unconscious patterns in human behavior can give rise to an implicit bias that
impacts delivery of justice in our legal system and in society in general.
Please join us for an in-depth panel discussion and interactive training with
Probate and Family Court Chief Justice John D. Casey, David Hoffman and John
Laing. Learn how to recognize implicit biases in yourself and how to minimize
their impact in the context of Probate and Family Court matters.
This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required
by 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, to participate in this program. After
you register with the MBA, please look for an email from the Probate
and Family Court with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be
sent before the program.
