You're a trained and experienced legal professional, and you make decisions based on facts and logic every day. But that's not the whole story. The cutting-edge fields of neuroscience and behavioural economics tell us that many of our seemingly rational decisions are significantly influenced by habitual emotional responses and cognitive biases, sometimes despite our best efforts. Our panel of experts explains how law firms and other organizations are applying these new findings to understand (and improve) the decision-making process, both within yourself and others. You learn how to recognize and address these factors to make your communications with clients better understood, your negotiation techniques stronger, and your advocacy more persuasive.

  • Understand how various parts of the brain process different types of information and why
  • Recognize the physiological reactions from stress and how to manage them in yourself and address them in others
  • Gain the tools to help identify instinctive emotional responses that may impede a rational choice
