9781107648180: Implicit Racial Bias across the Law

Despite cultural progress in reducing overt acts of racism, stark racial disparities continue to define American life. This book is for anyone who wonders why race still matters and is interested in what emerging social science can contribute to the discussion. The book explores how scientific evidence on the human mind might help to explain why racial equality is so elusive. This new evidence reveals how human mental machinery can be skewed by lurking stereotypes, often bending to accommodate hidden biases reinforced by years of social learning. Through the lens of these powerful and pervasive implicit racial attitudes and stereotypes, Implicit Bias across the Law examines both the continued subordination of historically disadvantaged groups and the legal system's complicity in the subordination.

About the Author:

Justin D. Levinson is Associate Professor of Law and founding Director of the Culture and Jury Project at the University of Hawaii, William S. Richardson School of Law. Levinson's research explores the challenges to efficient decision making, particularly in the context of implicit racial and gender stereotypes. He has authored numerous articles and conducted empirical studies on implicit bias, including on implicit gender bias in the legal profession, skin tone bias in the evaluation of criminal evidence, and the implicit presumption of guilt for black males, among others. He has also written about issues of cultural psychology and economic decision making. Levinson previously practised corporate and securities law at Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich and Rosati in Palo Alto, California, where he counseled technology companies at various stages of development.
