How Defense Attorneys Can Eliminate Implicit Bias and Racial Disparities in Criminal Justice Webinar Presented by Nazgol Ghandnoosh, Ph.D.

In that regard, attendance at all seminars (apart from the certification review seminar) is limited to criminal defense attorneys, mitigation specialists, defense investigators and other staff involved in providing criminal defense.

She regularly presents to academic, practitioner, and general audiences and her work has been featured in outlets including the Washington Post, the New York Times, and WNYC’s On the Media.
