We sharpen legal professionals’ awareness and understanding of the diverse psychological phenomena and forces in order to increase clarity in their thinking and decision making.

We are creating the platform of choice for law firms with a desire to be up to date regarding the impact of behavioral science on their resprective legal field and legal professionals with the ambition to improve their individual thinking and decision making.
– Philip J. Hattemer, Vice Chairman of the Rational Think Tank
In recent years, the growing influence of behavioral law and economics has been accompanied by the emergence of empirical and experimental legal studies. The discipline of behavioral law and economics discusses specific behavioral phenomena, their ramifications for legal policymaking, and their reflection in extant law. This new paradigm has not only transformed the nature and scope of the research conducted but continues to provide crucial insight for legal practitioners and the judiciary.
– Julian Grabiger, Chairman of the Rational Think Tank
