The psychology of lawyers themselves is highly relevant to the work attorneys do on behalf of their clients. While some may assume that lawyers are hyper-rational beings, research reveals that lawyers are human after all.
This webinar will focus on the psychology of perception, communication, persuasion, emotion, judgment, decision-making, justice and ethics. It will show how knowledge of lawyers' psychology in each of these areas can help lawyers more effectively and ethically interview, counsel, negotiate, mediate, investigate, and litigate on behalf of their clients.
The speakers at the event will be Professor Jean Sternlight,the Michael and Sonja Saltman Professor of Law and Founding Director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution at the University of Nevada Las Vegas Boyd School of Law, and Ms Mary Walker OAM, Chair of the Law Council of Australia's International Law Section.
