The latest volume of Behavioral Science Briefs for the Trial Advocate was published recently and is available here. It summarizes research on issues including juror decision-making, mock jurors’ evaluation of firearm testimony, eyewitness identifications, child interviewing, and other topics relevant to the criminal practitioner.
A deep understanding of human behavior offers an edge to trial attorneys. Yet the sheer volume of studies published each month in the behavioral sciences prevents most dedicated attorneys from remaining abreast of this rich literature base.
In support of attorneys who seek to practice at the highest levels, board-certified forensic psychologists Dr. Daniel J. Neller and Dr. Maureen L. Reardon regularly review the latest contents of hundreds of scholarly journals; analyze studies of greatest benefit to trial attorneys; and present key findings in a concise and simple format. Each edition is posted here.
If you would like to receive subsequent issues quarterly, email Dr. Daniel J. Neller (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Maureen L. Reardon (email@example.com) to be added to their distribution list.
