By its very nature a litigation practice is filled with differing impressions, beliefs, and perspectives. Explore how an individual’s beliefs, perspectives, and impressions are influenced and shaped by life experience and external forces such as conventional and social media. The science of how those views are developed will be explored, along with tips and strategies for representing unsympathetic clients. A panel of federal and state judges will discuss differences in the courtroom and how to level the playing field. Another panel will examine raising the issue of implicit bias with juries. On a more conversational level, Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha Walters will share her thoughts during an interview with OSB member Yoona Park.

The 23rd Annual Owen M. Panner Professionalism Award will be presented to Clarence Belnavis, Fisher & Phillips LLP, Portland.
