When Legal Education Attenuates Use of Social Stereotypes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Dual-process models suggest that stereotypes influence decision-making absent effortful individuation. Legal education may offer an alternative route by providing a framework of rules, the application of which can supplant use of social categories. The results of three experimental studies provide strong support for this hypothesis: In each, untrained participants and participants trained in indeterminate or irrelevant legal rules made liability decisions that were influenced by stereotypes associated with the litigants. By comparison, the decisions of trained participants applying determinate legal rules were unrelated to those stereotypes. Implications for focusing basic and applied research on bias in legal-decision making are discussed.
