Cunningham Presents at Psychology and Law Conference

Associate Academic Dean Larry Cunningham presented at the University of Nevada Las Vegas’ Conference on Psychology and Law: Coalescing the Field on February 21, 2014.  Dean Cunningham’s presentation focused on the ways that lawyers can reduce stress and anxiety during trials and oral arguments.  Drawing on his research in the area of cognitive behavioral psychology, he argued that there are straightforward ways that faculty—particularly legal writing professors teaching students how to conduct their first moot court argument—can educate law students about the mechanics of anxiety and methods for reducing nervousness.
