Court Review, Volume 52, Issue 2 (2016)
In this issue, we present three articles squarely focused on what judges do, addressing issues of emotion, wisdom, and ethics.
In our first article, Sharyn Roach Anleu, David Rottman, and Kathy Mack consider the role of emotion in the work judges do. They have embarked on a four-year international study of judging and emotions; this article provides a first look at background research, their project, and the intersection of emotions and judicial misbehavior as shown in several specific examples. For another look at judging and emotion, take a look at Terry Maroney’s prior Court Review article, The Emotionally Intelligent Judge: A New (And Realistic) Ideal, available online at http://goo.gl/SL96i0.
