On March 25, 2021, Omar Nasar presented a CLE on “Implicit Bias in Litigation” at the 2021 Pace University’s Law Leadership Celebration. Omar spoke along with Judge Malaika Scott-McLaughlin and Catherine Gonzalez, a senior attorney at Brooklyn Defender Services. Omar addressed the need for trial attorneys in civil litigation to understand the impact of implicit bias on their teaming approach, jury selection, and trial presentation. He also delineated strategies that can be used by attorneys to proactively guard against implicit biases from hijacking rational decision making during the entire life cycle of the litigation in order to deliver better results for their clients.
