Lawyers must be able to objectively evaluate the facts and law to competently and diligently advise their clients. That is, objectivity necessarily precedes effective advocacy. Behavioral science research supports the premise that human cognition creates systematic and predictable errors in human judgment that impede our ability to objectively evaluate.

This presentation will identify some of the cognitive pitfalls that prevent lawyers from objectively evaluating their clients’ cases and provide tips for overcoming those pitfalls.
