VALERIE HANS, PROFESSOR OF LAW, CORNELL LAW, DECIDING ON DOLLARS
Legal systems often require the translation of qualitative assessments into quantitative judgments, yet the conversion process can be challenging. Civil jurors report that arriving at damage awards that are commensurate with a plaintiff’s injuries is one of the most difficult aspects of their decision making. Professor Hans will present recent experimental and survey research that helps us to better understand the process by which jurors move from qualitative judgments about the severity of an injury to quantitative decisions about money damage awards. Her presentation will be from 12:50-2:00 pm, online. This event is supported by a generous gift from the Robert L. Habush Endowment.
