American lawyers have a proud tradition of representing unpopular clients, but they are increasingly shamed, harassed, and retaliated against for such representation. Lawyer shaming is a growing problem, both within and outside the legal profession. This course will help lawyers understand and combat lawyer shaming as a source of explicit, implicit, and systemic bias that threatens equal access to justice and ultimately the rule of law.
