Title: The Psychology of Judging
Speaker: Hon Andrew J Wistrich, US District Court, Central District Court of California.
Psychologists and behavioural economists have shown that people are vulnerable to cognitive illusions that can distort their choices and decisions. Do judges share that susceptibility when making decisions in their courtrooms? Drawing on scores of experiments utilizing thousands of judges as research subjects, this presentation attempts to answer that question.
