    What Judges Feel

    What Judges Feel

    With Vanderbilt Law Professor Terry Maroney, Marisa Polowitz and Olivia Ashé dive into a conversation to discuss a rather elusive topic in the law – judicial temperament. Judicial temperament is often referred to when judges are appointed to the court, but if we are honest, we are not even really sure what it means. Maroney has spent the past ten years investigating the intersection of law and emotion, and in this episode Maroney weaves together legal analysis with the psychology, sociology and philosophy of emotion to help us understand, define and apply the concept of judicial temperament.
