Legal Judgement and the Motivation for Justice

71st annual Nebraska Symposium on Motivation

Target Audiences:
Richard Wiener and Dave Hansen
The purpose of this symposium is to examine the antecedents of the motivation for justice, describe how that motivation activates and manifests in various legal institutions (i.e., elections, legislatures, courts, and executive offices), and trace the failure of that motivation to influence legal decision-making.

It has become very clear to many who work in the area of Law and Psychology that we currently possess a great deal of knowledge about the psychology of the legal system, including the way in which the behavior of legislatures, judges, jurors, attorneys, litigants, and defendants shapes the outcome of justice. It has also become very clear that the main obstacles to beneficial modifications to the legal system stem from the lack of motivation to seek justice, motivation to change the legal process, and motivation to make use of evidence-based decision-making.
