Will Your Expert's Bias Cost You Your Next Case?
Is your expert really objective?

Approved by the State Bar of California for 1.0 hours general MCLE credit. Cognitive (unconscious) bias and motivational bias can adversely affect the final opinion offered by a forensic examiner. In many instances the examiner is unaware of the bias induced by conversations with the retaining party. The result of biased opinions may be an opinion that is unsustainable under cross-examination in court. By attending this presentation both forensic examiners and retaining parties such as attorneys obtain a better understanding of how their relationships should be managed in order to reduce potential bias. In 2009 Israeli study three groups of practicing emergency room doctors were presented with the same case. The case was framed slightly differently for each of the three groups of 17 doctors. Simply biasing the case information resulted in a 90% misdiagnosis rate in one of the groups. Learning to recognize bias in examination of information can greatly improve the results presented by the forensic examiner. Attendees of this presentation will: • Learn to recognize when case information provided is biased • Develop methods to reduce the influence of potential bias • Recognize when their experience is inappropriately applied to new situations • Reduce the contextual bias when presenting data
