Using Cognitive Science and Behavioral Economics in the Courtroom

Published by Consumer Attorneys of California
and Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association
Learning Objectives
  • Science-based understanding of how the human brain makes sense of the world
  • How to use metaphors and framing in trial to help the jury understand and identify with your client
  • Emotional, cultural and social factors that influence decisions
  • Practical application of cognitive science and behavioral economics in the courtroom






Summary

The human brain uses metaphors to make sense of abstract ideas. How you frame your case and the metaphors you use can trigger emotional, cultural and social beliefs that influence a juror’s view of your client and your client’s case. The right framing can determine if jurors identify with your client or with the defendant and whether they find your client deserving of compensation.

 

R. Rex Parris will demonstrate the practical application of cognitive science and behavioral economics in personal injury, employment, pharmaceutical, business and class-action litigation. These techniques are based on the neuroscience of how people make sense of the world and make decisions that are in line with their view of how the world should work. They are applicable to any controversy and will increase the value of cases sitting on your desk right now!
