Implicit Bias in the Legal Profession: Mental Health and Double Stigma

Event Description

Lawyer Wellness CLE Series

Presented by Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers and co-sponsored by the Criminal Law, Civil Litigation, and Solo Small Practice Experience Sections

Implicit bias discussions in the legal profession must include mental health (including substance use) and stress issues. This program will begin with a general understanding of the concept of implicit bias and discuss how implicit bias stands in the way of lawyers seeking the help they need for mental health, stress, and well-being.While it’s hard for anyone to ask for help, there is a double stigma for those already in underrepresented groups. This program will address the challenges faced by lawyers, judges, and law students when asking for help for mental health issues. It will also address the relationship between mental health issues and diversity and inclusion.The program includes a discussion of strategies to overcome these issues.
