Legal Decision Lab



Welcome to the Legal Decision Lab at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) under the direction of Dr. Krystia Reed. Our research examines how people make legal decisions with a social-cognitive psychological perspective. Most of our research focuses on attributions made in a legal setting. Our research mainly investigates the psychological factors influencing attorney perceptions and policy decisions.


The legal decision lab is currently accepting research assistants. Dr. Reed will be accepting graduate students for UTEP's Legal Psychology PhD program for Fall 2020.
