The Role of Cognitive Bias on Lawyers & the Practice of Law

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

Toronto Lawyers Association (TLA) hosts this program presented by the husband-wife duo, David Rudolf, featured in Netflix’s hit "The Staircase," and Sonya Pfeiffer, an award-winning journalist who covered the real-life trial behind the series. This unique presentation will appeal to all lawyers, regardless of practice area and jurisdiction as cognitive bias can occur in any circumstance.

Watch as the presenters analyze the case study from the trial of Michael Peterson, in order to demonstrate how unconscious bias plays out in a complex and high-profile criminal trial. Sonya Pfeiffer and David Rudolf discuss the inevitability of cognitive bias, how it can be dangerous in the practice of law, how institutions reinforce tunnel vision, and how to eliminate blind spots when inspecting theories.
