Abstract Share this page

The first purpose of this chapter is to examine several different theoretical approaches to legal issues. Although most of the discussion will focus on the work that has been carried out by social psychologists, many of the issues are relevant to other efforts in the psychology-law area. An examination of the relative merits of laboratory simulations and in situ research on legal decision-making constitutes the second purpose. Finally, an alternative theoretical/methodological approach to legal decisions—one that we favor—will be briefly presented.
