This program will begin with a general discussion of the concept of implicit bias and its application to the legal profession and practice of law. The specific areas of age and disability will be discussed to a greater degree as they apply to client services and stereotypes and to members of the profession. The program will illustrate how implicit bias stands in the way of lawyers seeking the help they need for mental health (including cognitive impairment and substance use) and stress issues.
Discussion will include "the silver tsunami" in the legal profession and elsewhere and how assumptions and biases about age can result in ethical problem and greater distress for lawyers and their colleagues. 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 challenge for lawyers, judges and law students to ask for help for mental health issues, including age-related cognitive impairment, the relationship between mental health issues and diversity and inclusion and a discussion of current challenges and strategies to address them.
