Description

LEVIC is a cross-disciplinary research group with researchers from law, philosophy, cognitive psychology and statistics. Our research concerns legal fact-finding, especially criminal evidence. We investigate empirically how legal decision-makers (judges or jurors) evaluate evidence, and we are particularly interested in cognitive bias and probabilistic fallacies. We do research that aims to improve the methodology of legal fact-finding, especially Bayesian modelling (Bayesian Networks) of legal evidence.
