Subtle Harassment, Code Words and Implicit Bias: Proving Everyday Discrimination in Court

Program Number: 2921 Presenter: Taylor J. Crabill, Esq., Lawrence M. Pearson, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** For employment law practitioners, egregious and high-profile incidents and allegations are not the only matters that generate litigation. More subtle forms of bias are often central to sustaining or defending against a discrimination or harassment claim, as many cases do not include a “smoking gun” piece of evidence or an allegation that neatly fulfills the various requirements of a cause of action. Bias on the part of managers or coworkers also does not always present itself or cause harm in obvious, open ways. Federal and state courts have grappled with how facially neutral statements, particularly when combined with other evidence and unequal practices, may show workplace discrimination. Similarly, subtle, indirect and unwelcome sexual advances or other mistreatment can support harassment claims under the law. This presentation will discuss

Ethics and Employment Law: Who is the Client and is it you?

Program Number: 2919 Presenter: Patricia C. Collins, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** This seminar will review the ethics issues that arise for employment attorneys in representing an organization. It is inevitable that such a representation will result in close working relationships with executives and human resource employees that complicate the attorney-client relationship. Further, close involvement with the operations of the client or a particular decision regarding an employee may render the attorney a fact witness or simply too close to give good advice. Topics to be examined are: negotiating employee contracts, drafting policies that impact your client contact, termination or resignation of your client contract, attorneys as fact witnesses, attorneys as investigators, and maintaining professional distance.

What It Takes to be a Trial Lawyer If You’re Not a Man: The Ethical, Professional, and Personal Costs of Confronting Gender Bias in the Courtroom

Program Number: 2906 Presenter: Lara Bazelon

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Today, women make up more than one half of all law school graduates. Yet they remain dramatically underrepresented at the top echelons of the profession. Two thirds of state and federal judges are men, as are 83 percent of elected prosecutors; less than one percent are women of color. In the majority of law firms, large and small, women make up only a fraction of the powerful inner circle: partners who bring in clients, lead litigation teams, and sit on powerful management and compensation committees. In the coveted position of first chair at trial, the number of women shrinks further. In this MCLE, law professor and trial lawyer Lara Bazelon explores the systemic gender bias exhibited by judges, opposing counsel, jurors, or the clients themselves that impedes women’s
