In an effort to confront intersectional, systemic injustice, panelists will provide insight into how litigants and practitioners experience bias in the courts, and the role bias plays in perpetuating an under-resourced court system that serves the most vulnerable New Yorkers. Panelists will highlight the findings of the "Report from the Special Adviser on Equal Justice in the New York State Courts" produced by Jeh Johnson, the "Gender Survey 2020" produced by the New York State Judicial Committee on Women in the Courts, and the reforms being instituted in response. Panelists will consider strategies for reducing bias, including training, oversight, and institutional reform.
