The Changing Legal Profession: Culture, Science & Technology - Part 1

Can Science Fix the Justice System?

 The latest psychological research suggests that legal actors are influenced by numerous cognitive biases.  In response, reformers have pushed to implement evidence-based educational programs and structural changes to improve accuracy and fairness.  Much of that important work has been modest in scope and to make major progress, we must ask more radical questions.  If our judgments are influenced by race, physical attractiveness, and other factors, should we move to virtual adjudication, in which court participants are represented by neutral avatars?  In the future, is our best hope for controlling bias to cede legal decision-making to computers?  Might we eradicate bias by eliminating the need for police officers, courts, and prisons?
