Farris Associate Yun Li-Reilly’s Research Featured in Article

In ‘Judging, fast and slow: using decision-making theory to explore judicial fact determination’, an article that will be published this month in The International Journal of Evidence & Proof, Dr. Emma Cunliffe of the University of British Columbia explores the key insights that cognitive psychology can offer to those who are interested in understanding how decision-makers such as judges think about the facts of a case, and where decision-makers may be prone to error. In her article, Dr. Cunliffe examines the connections between established cognitive and psychological research and areas of fact determination that have presented difficulties for the criminal courts, including sexual assault, child homicide and the assessment of expert testimony. Yun Li-Reilly, an associate of Farris, assisted with the preparation of this paper. While completing her J.D. at the University of British Columbia, Yun provided research assistance to Dr. Cunliffe in the areas of socio-cognitive psychology and expert testimony. Dr. Cunliffe’s research was funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Standard Research Grant.
