Workshop on Judicial Behavior

Frank H. Easterbrook

William M. Landes
Richard A. Posner

The Workshop on Judicial Behavior provides students with a unique opportunity to read and analyze cutting-edge scholarship that focuses on how judges reach their decisions. In a case law system such as that of the United States, a realistic understanding of judicial behavior, which conventional legal instruction does not convey, is essential to the understanding and practice of law. 

Over the course of the academic year, eight scholars from the fields of law and the social sciences will present their work. By the end of the academic year, students will produce a major research paper (typically around 25 pages, though there is no limit) on judicial behavior.

The Workshop is limited to twenty law students; interested students should contact Professor Landes by the start of fall quarter. Event pages for each individual workshop, with the papers that will be presented attached, can be found here. Please email Theresa Yuan for any additional questions.
