Cognitive Biases: Urine Tests, Legal Education Neuromyths, and Lawyers

There has been a lot published on cognitive biases, legal education, and lawyers over the last couple of months.  I decided to write a short article summarizing this material:

"Over the past few years, I have been studying cognitive biases, and now I see them everywhere. They are pervasive in both our public and private lives. They affect how we see politics, do our jobs, and relate to others. Understanding cognitive biases is especially important for legal educators and lawyers.

This article introduces cognitive biases, then shows how they affect medical decisions. The article then discusses cognitive biases in connection with legal education and lawyers."
