Notes

This course explores how social science evidence on the human mind (specifically, implicit stereotypes related to gender, race, national origin, religion, disability, and more) creates challenges for the American legal system and traditional legal rules. Implicit Bias and the Law considers how research on implicit bias has changed the way people think about the law in a broad range of topics, including criminal law and justice, employment law, property law, self governance of Native peoples, capital punishment, and more.
