What It Takes to be a Trial Lawyer If You’re Not a Man: The Ethical, Professional, and Personal Costs of Confronting Gender Bias in the Courtroom (10/30/2019)

Program Number: 2906 Presenter: Lara Bazelon

Today, women make up more than one half of all law school graduates. Yet they remain dramatically underrepresented at the top echelons of the profession. Two thirds of state and federal judges are men, as are 83 percent of elected prosecutors; less than one percent are women of color. 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. In the coveted position of first chair at trial, the number of women shrinks further. In this MCLE, law professor and trial lawyer Lara Bazelon explores the systemic gender bias exhibited by judges, opposing counsel, jurors, or the clients themselves that impedes women’s advancement in the courtroom. She discusses the "double bind" that ensnares women who must be strong without coming across as strident and
