Hahn Loeser presented its Annual Ethics and Professionalism CLE Program: Wanna Learn Mind Control? A Psychological Seminar for Legal Professionals on December 6, 2018.
Our brains are most vulnerable to cognitive errors during high-pressure, adversarial situations. When it comes to litigation or high-stakes negotiation, it is no surprise that psychological glitches in witness, client and attorney decision-making can severely damage case outcomes.
Presenter Matt McCuskter, Founder of Convince LLC and LitPredict designed this seminar with in-house counsel in mind to help them spot and avoid these costly cognitive mistakes. Matt also discussed ways for in-house counsel to use psychological missteps to their advantage in negotiations, case strategy, depositions, contract development, and more.
