Tiny Chat 143: The Elevator Effect

We all know collegiality matters, but do you know why and how? Join a discussion with Morgan Hazelton (St. Louis University), Rachael Hinkle (U. of Buffalo), and Michael Nelson (Penn State) to discuss their groundbreaking (and C. Herman Pritchett Award winning) new book The Elevator Effect: Contact and Collegiality in the American Judiciary. Using a novel dataset, these three political scientists develop and test a theory of judicial behavior and legal development based on interpersonal interactions among judges. Their results have important implications for courts and judges and judicial scholars, and they share some practical ways courts can leverage these learnings. All in one short elevator ride! Enjoy the Tiny Chat and grab your copy of the book!
