October 12, 2011


Professor Adam Benforado discussed “The Psychology of Retribution: Studying Human Intuitions about Punishment,” as an invited guest at the University of Tulsa College of Law on Oct. 7.

On Sept. 8, he presented “Corporate Subjects: Experiments in Profitability” at the invitation of the Wake Forest University School of Law. You can read the paper here.

Benforado applies insights from the mind sciences — most notably embodied cognition, moral psychology and implicit social cognition — to law and legal theory. His work explores issues arising in corporate law, contract law and criminal law. His recent work explores the impact on our legal system of unappreciated aspects of our cognitive frameworks and processes.
