TODAY: Diversity in the Courtroom - Gender, Context and Credibility

CLE - Diversity in Courtroom: Gender, Context & Credibility

Hosted by the Women in the Profession Committee

Ever wonder what a difference "difference" makes? How does gender diversity affect attorneys in the variety of contexts in which they find themselves (with judges, clients and juries)? Does being a woman matter to jurors, and which jurors?

In this practical CLE program, Dr. Ann T. Greeley Ph.D., a psychologist and trial consultant with more than two decades of experience, will address gender diversity, how credibility may be assessed by various audiences, and the challenges involved in measuring the impact of diversity in litigation and negotiating environments.

Dr. Greeley will examine the concepts of expertise, trustworthiness and attractiveness in the context of gender in the courtroom. The following topics will be highlighted among others:

  • Gender - why this is a challenge to interpret in the courtroom
  • How jurors assess lawyer credibility
    • Expertise
    • Trustworthiness
    • Attractiveness
  • Research and implications for practice
  • Importance of context in understanding gender issues

Join your colleagues in the Women in the Profession Committee for this informative CLE program.
