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.

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.

For years, electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes was considered an exclusively Executive Branch authority, and every president from Franklin Roosevelt to Richard Nixon authorized its use. When serious abuses by U.S. intelligence agencies were revealed during congressional hearings held in the aftermath of Watergate, Congress reacted by passing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act which, for the first time, subjected foreign intelligence electronic surveillance conducted in the United States to a statutory regimen that included approval by a newly created Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Specifically, HP requires firms to “field (i) at least one diverse firm relationship partner, regularly engaged with HP on billing and staffing issues; or (ii) at least one woman and one racially/ethnically diverse attorney, each performing or managing at least 10% of the billable hours worked on HP matters.” In order to obtain work from larger companies that support increased diversity, many law firms have created diversity initiatives in order to meet

**** 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.
