Behavioral Legal Ethics* is a place for a wide-ranging discussion about the intersection between behavioral science, law and ethics.  The conversations will appeal to anyone interested in the ways in which empirical psychological research can inform questions about how legal institutions and practices encourage ethical behaviors in legal and non-legal actors.

*Thanks to Jean Sternlight and Jennifer Robbennolt, whose influential article Behavioral Legal Ethics coined the phrase.
