Detecting Deception: What Lawyers Can Learn From Scientists
Featured Presenter: Michael Johnson, CEO, Clear Law Institute
What You Will Learn
Lawyers often try to detect deception when interviewing witnesses and negotiating with opposing counsel. To do so, they often rely on their “gut instinct” and popular stereotypes about how liars behave when they lie. However, in recent years, scientists have shown that many popular beliefs about how liars behave are inaccurate. For example, liars are not more likely to avoid eye contact or be more fidgety than truth-tellers.
In this thought-provoking and practical program from former U.S. Department of Justice attorney Michael Johnson, you will learn scientifically validated methods for detecting lies and deception. This engaging presentation will show you how to:
• Spot deception by viewing videos from actual interviews
• Avoid common errors in lie detection
• Identify deception cues related to verbal content, verbal style, and other linguistic cues
• Utilize questioning techniques to more easily differentiate between liars and truth-tellers
• Ask questions designed to increase “cognitive load,” making it more difficult for liars to maintain their stories
• Analyze the content of a witness’ statement for signs not only of deception but also of truthfulness
In addition, you will learn about recent scientific research related to discouraging, spotting, and responding to deception in negotiations.
Michael W. Johnson is CEO of Clear Law Institute and a former U.S. Department of Justice attorney. He has trained thousands of lawyers and other professionals how to effectively interview witnesses and spot scientifically-validated signs of deception. He has provided training to organizations such as Google, the United Nations, the World Bank, and the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department.
