Did you know that scientists have scanned people’s brains as they make decisions and that these scans tell us what keeps us from effectively strategizing on cases and solving problems, motivates us, scares us and fools us? How can we use these studies to help attorneys to make effective and efficent decisions even under extreme pressure and to act fairly in our global society? In this highly interactive course participants will explore emerging research in neuroscience and how it affects decision-making. Brain imaging studies will be used to explain how attorneys make decisions in litigation and trasactional law. The course will explore how reactions in our brains affect our assessments of threat, intelligence, veracity, and competence. The course will identify ways to increase fairness guided by science.
