Book Review: Psychology for Lawyers

ADR Prof Blog by Andrea Schneider, Michael Moffitt, Sarah Cole,Art Hinshaw, Jill Gross and Cynthia Alkon.

The book Psychology for Lawyers: Understanding the Human Factors in Negotiation, Litigation, and Decision Making, is now out. (Available here). It’s simply fantastic. Jennifer Robbennolt and Jean Sternlight have done our field an enormous service. My only criticism of their work is that it is so thorough that it does not lend itself easily to simple exceprt-creating for those of us charged with creating casebooks or course assignments. But that is, of course, a sign that the book tackles its important topics with depth and substance. Bravo to both of the authors!
