“Sober as a judge” is a trope for good reason, but there has been little serious study about the elements of judicial temperament. Most people who have spent time in court can think of both positive and negative examples of judicial behavior, but developing a psychological framework for understanding that behavior is surprisingly difficult.  As virtual proceedings provide more transparency, judges are on public view to a greater extent than ever before.  What should viewers be looking for?

Judge Jeremy Fogel, BJI Executive Director, and Professor Terry Maroney will discuss Professor Maroney’s cutting edge research on this topic.
