About the Program

In September 2023, the Judicial Council of California approved new jury instruction CALCRIM 209 to be used in criminal cases. The pre-trial instruction advises jurors on the role implicit bias can play in their decision making process. In this program, criminal defense attorney Allison Margolin, will explore the new jury instruction and it’s potential impact on jurors, attorneys, and outcomes, will discuss how implicit bias impacts jury selection, and will address implicit bias trends across the state.
