Program Number: 2861 Presenter: Gregory R. Hanthorn, Esq., Daniel J. Merrett, Esq., Joanna Heiberg Sutton, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Hidden bias is difficult to root out. We are all incapable of completely impartially examining our reasons for acting; that’s why hidden bias is “hidden.” This CLE program seeks to explore differences between “bias” and “deduction and inference” through the innovative technique of following alongside one of fiction’s great ratiocinators – Sherlock Holmes. Using video clips from decades of Sherlock Holmes movies and television episodes our Moderator and Panelists will take you on a guided tour through ways in which Holmes, Watson, London and rural police inspectors and constables have either fallen prey to bias or avoided bias by thinking clearly. The end result? The program presents a series of positive and negative examples of interacting with the ABA’s amended Model Rule addressing bias and beyond.
