Select this package if you are not a DRI member. The package will register you for the live Race, Gender & Ethnicity: The Elephant (and Zebra) in the Courtroom webinar as well as give you access to on demand viewing of the webinar.
Our speakers will focus on how lawyers and other litigation decision makers should account for and address race, gender, ethnicity and other diversity issues in claims alleging misconduct by law enforcement and other public officials. Our ability to address issues does not usually reflect our need to do so, and they too often remain a proverbial “elephant in the courtroom.” In other words, we all know such issues influence how people think and act, but we frequently don’t talk about them. Our thesis is that these issues must be addressed early and often, from the initial intake through discovery and, certainly, at trial. Those who ignore the elephant, or pretend it’s not there, are likely to get squashed.
