The CLE helps lawyers examine, address, and begin to overcome their own implicit biases, referencing materials from the American Bar Association Implicit Bias Initiative and the Harvard University Implicit Association Test.

New Video CLE: From “Loving” to “Get Out”: Legal and Implicit/Explicit Bias about Interracial Relationships, 1 Ethics
Now you can take this popular course at your leisure as a new on-demand video CLE from Nucleus Legal Education– From “Loving” to “Get Out”: Legal and Implicit/Explicit Bias about Interracial Relationships, $59, 1 Ethics Credit (PA).
Fifty years ago, the US Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia outlawed the miscegenation laws that made it illegal for African American and white persons to marry. While the most harsh form of legal bias against interracial relationships is illegal, there is still implicit and explicit bias related to interracial relationships. This was depicted in the recent number one movie, “Get Out”, which is a social/psychological horror story of an African American man who visits the parents of his white girlfriend at their home. There has been much discussion in the media about the popularity of “Get Out” and what it says about interracial relationships today.
This CLE will discuss Loving v. Virginia in the context of the legal and social implications of interracial marriage in the 1960s and before and Loving’s precedential value in the more recent court decisions regarding gay marriage. The CLE will then discuss “Get Out” in the context of the current social and political environment, both conservative and liberal. The course will weave in a discussion of personal implicit and explicit bias and how it impacts attorney/client relations, from an attorney’s decision to take on, prosecute or defend a client who may be in an interracial relationship to the manner in which that attorney interacts with the client. The course will cover methods that attorneys can use to test, examine, and attempt to overcome their own implicit and explicit bias, including materials from the American Bar Association Implicit Bias Initiative and Harvard University’s Implicit Association Test.
