Barristers Diversity & Inclusion Committee invites you to an enriching discussion with lawyers who represent domestic violence survivors, criminal defendants, and those involved in the foster care system to explore how biased narratives emerge, their impact on clients, and the specific steps attorneys can take to change these narratives. Attendees will receive 1 hour of Recognition of Elimination of Bias Minimum Continuing Legal Education Credit.


  • Why do attorneys choose certain representations?
  • In what ways are crime narratives biased against communities of color?
  • How do our biases contribute to how we tell clients’ stories?
  • How do biased narratives perpetuate systemic bias in the legal system?
