Welcome to the Law & Mind Sciences Blog, a blog that examines the relevance of social psychology, social cognition, cognitive neuroscience, moral psychology, political psychology, and related fields for law and legal theory. Authored by a group of talented (and modest) Harvard Law students, the Law & Mind Sciences Blog is a core component of the Law & Mind Sciences Seminar, an innovative blogging-based course taught by Jon Hanson, the Alfred Smart Professor of Law at Harvard Law School.
The Law & Mind Sciences Blog is an extension of The Project on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard Law School, a project dedicated to understanding the implications of social psychology, social cognition, and other related mind sciences for law, policymaking, and legal theory. All content featured on the Law & Mind Sciences Blog is for non-profit, educational purposes only.
We hope that you enjoy the Law & Mind Science Blog, and we urge you to contribute to our discussions about the fascinating intersection of mind sciences and the law.
