Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin will be speaking on March 27, 2017 as part of the American Association of Justice (AAJ) Membership Webinar: Diversity in Law. The webinar will explore the various issues facing diversity recruitment including best practices in hiring and retaining diverse attorneys, the positive impacts a diverse trial team can have on clients and juries, and how a diverse firm can optimally grow its practice.
Ms. Martin will address the utilization of behavioral “design hacks” to sidestep implicit bias in recruiting and attorney evaluations, noting that solutions often need to be tailored for individual firms based on gathered data and experimentation. You can sign up for the webinar at the AAJ website.
