Biased Trials, Insights from Behavioral Law and Economics, by Goran Dominioni

Summary
Goran Dominioni argues that research in behavioral economics, psychology, and neurosciences can offer novel insights on whether court decisions are accurate, non-discriminatory, and maximize social welfare. The author also shows that insights from these areas of research can help to improve trial outcomes if carefully applied to craft trial rules and practices. He covers central themes in behavioral law and economics, such as implicit racial biases, the fundamental attribution error, and gender-related biases.
