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.
