New bench book on implicit bias includes chapter by Judicial Studies professor

Professor Monica K. Miller, who teaches in the joint NJC/University of Nevada, Reno Judicial Studies Program, contributed a chapter on implicit bias to a newly released bench book on the subject.

Enhancing Justice: Reducing Bias, published by the American Bar Association, examines different approaches to lessen the impact of implicit bias in the courts.

Featuring contributions from judges, lawyers, social scientists, professors and experienced trainers, the book seeks to “break the bias habit,” an ABA press release says, “by increasing knowledge and awareness of implicit bias and showing how to improve understanding and practice of procedural fairness and of culturally competent communication across cultures.”

Miller is a member of the University of Nevada, Reno’s Criminal Justice Department and Interdisciplinary Social Psychology Ph.D. Program.
