Bias in the courtroom is a prevalent problem. Bias exists in all people. The ability to recognize your biases and the biases of your opponent can save or lose your case.

Black’s Law Dictionary Tenth Edition identifies 6 types of bias in the courtroom. Not on the list of biases is “Expert Witness Bias.” As a legal professional responsibility is to recognize whether your expert witness is succumbing to unconscious biases that will be exposed in deposition or trial. We all have biases, learn to overcome yours and deliver a foolproof testimony.

Effectively recognize and reduce your biases

Know how to counter the biases of the opposition

Determine whether your forensic examiner’s report is biased

Recognize the e?ects of bias on forensic examiners’ opinions

Make implicit biases work in your favor

Learn how biases impact the jury’s perspective
