How Legal Professionals Get the Bias Out

Learn how biases can impact a jury's perception of your case and strategies to eliminate bias during the jury selection process.

While overt racism is rarely seen in the courtroom, stereotypes and racial bias can impact how jurors see the world in subtle ways at both a conscious and subconscious level. When race or ethnicity is a salient feature in a case, it can influence how jurors view the parties, weigh the evidence, and deliberate to a verdict. However, it is often difficult to ferret out how race may impact a juror during jury selection. This topic will address how race, stereotypes, and bias impact juror decision-making, offer practical strategies for uncovering bias during voir dire, discuss important remedial measures that encourage honest disclosure of bias, and layout the steps for raising a successful Batson challenge. This information is critical for creating a positive environment for jurors which encourages honest disclosure.
