Are you interested in legal reasoning, how our emotions affect our (legal) decision-making as a result of cognitive biases, the role of AI in courts, and much more?
If so, join for the platform launch of the RECOGNISE project on 13 April 2023 at Maastricht University.
The RECOGNISE project aims at developing an interdisciplinary training curriculum on legal reasoning and cognitive science. It is a strategic partnership of six European universities for higher education sponsored by the ERASMUS+ Programme. The project aims to provide the interested learners (legal researchers, law students, legal practitioners, and beyond) with introductory and advanced materials on topics including heuristics and biases in adjudication, cognitive structure of legal concepts, and defeasible reasoning in law.
For the platform launch, experts from different fields of law will demonstrate the relevance of the cognitive sciences (broadly understood) for legal reasoning and the law generally. Students, practitioners, and researchers are all welcome to attend!
The event is free, but registration is required. You can register here: https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/events/recognise-platform-launch
