How can I present evidence in a persuasive way taking advantage of the sophisticated scientific knowledge regarding how people think, process information and make decisions, especially in the context of a trial?
- You know the law and your witnesses and exhibits are ready.
- Your motion thoroughly supported and well-written.
- Everything you can anticipate at trial and hearing has been accounted for except the most important consideration of all...
- How is a jury of strangers going to react to this case?
- What thought process will the judge follow in deciding my motion?
This CLE program brings in the national experts who have performed and analyzed Nobel Prize winning research on human and especially court room decision making for over a decade.
Learn about how people -- including judges and jurors -- think in two different speeds, fast or slow. Long chalked up as mere "irrationality," social science now reveals a range of different situations, cognitive styles, values, and emotions, that all shape decisions in predictable ways. With a morning dedicated to the fascinating basic scientific research on human decision making -- including interactive exercises and replications of classic experiments, the afternoon features applications to juries in particular, with sessions on voir dire, expert witnesses, emotions, gory evidence, damages arguments, and group deliberation.
