ELS Lab Meetings - Paper Development Session: Niek Strohmaier on character evidence in court
- Friday 16 April 2021
Topic Paper Development Session
Paper Development Sessions involve presentations of work in progress. This can be at any stage of the research process, from the design to writing the actual paper. It is in particular a nice opportunity to receive feedback on empirical ideas and get suggestions on how to improve the methodology.
In this Paper Development Session, Niek Strohmaier will present his work in progress on character evidence in court. A key question derived from the literature on this topic is: are judges and/or juries disproportionality affected by information about a party’s character? A draft will be provided to those attending the session. Niek Strohmaier will discuss the following paper:
Pride or Prejudice? The biasing effect of character evidence in legal proceedings
