Exploring the Judicial
Mind: A Workshop on Psychology and Judicial Decision Making will
bring scholars from several disciplines together in Charlottesville for
two days of intensive and wide-ranging discussions at the intersection
of judicial behavior and cognitive, social, and personality psychology.
The immodest goal of the workshop is to set the agenda for a decade's
worth of research into the psychology of judging. By identifying
insights and debates from psychology that are highly relevant to
judging, exploring strategies for incorporating psychology into research
on judging, and then communicating these ideas to others in their
fields, the participants hope to enrich and invigorate the study of
judicial decision making and encourage psychologists to give more
attention to professional judges in their investigations.
