Problem Solving, Decision Making, and Professional Judgment

A Guide for Lawyers and Policymakers

First Edition

Paul Brest and Linda Hamilton Krieger

  • The book can be used for a stand-alone course in judgment and decision making.
  • Individual chapters may be purchased in print or in a digital format as a supplement for courses in law and public policy, problem solving, statistics, law and psychology, legal ethics, or in clinical or continuing legal education courses.
  • The book is highly interdisciplinary. It approaches judgment and decision making by showing how biases and heuristics cause people to "get it wrong," as well as by presenting concrete ideas about how to "get it right."
  • Problem Solving, Decision Making, and Professional Judgment is accompanied by an interactive website for instructors, which includes a teacher's manual, problems, PowerPoint slides, links to videos, media coverage of relevant issues of law and policy, other course materials, and a discussion forum.
