More Sessions Added for Neuroscience of Decision-Making Training

February 8, 2021

After an overwhelmingly positive response from members, the State Bar of Michigan is pleased to offer another three-part series of virtual training sessions with Kimberly Papillon, an internationally renowned judicial professor and lecturer on neuroscience and fair decision-making in law, medicine, education, and business. 

In her thought-provoking webinar, The Neuroscience of Decision-Making, Papillon explores how brain imaging and decision-making studies can explain how we determine intelligence, veracity, threat, and competence. With this understanding, participants can work to identify ways to ensure sound decision-making and fairness guided by science. 

Here’s what participants in our 2020 sessions had to say about the training: 

“This is definitely one of the best trainings I've been able to attend. Kimberly was phenomenal and I love how her teaching was always grounded in tons of data. She was very personable and made a difficult topic accessible. I would highly recommend it!” 

“Finding out more about oneself is always useful. This series revealed some things – good and bad – that I hadn't considered ... It was well worth my time.” 

“I really appreciated this seminar. It's a very important topic and has direct applicability to my practice. Excellent presentation!” 

This is a three-part series that covers the topic of unconscious decision-making from scientific background and concept (Parts One and Two) through solutions (Part Three). If you register, please plan to attend all three sessions. 

  • Part One: Thursday, February 25 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • Part Two: Thursday, March 4 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 
  • Part Three: Thursday, March 11 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

This webinar is offered free of charge to members and affiliates of the State Bar of Michigan.
