Hastie, R., Penrod, S.D. and Pennington, N. (1983) Inside the Jury. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press
This is the first study we will be looking at from the ‘reaching a verdict’ section of ‘reaching a verdict’, as part of your OCR A2 Forensic Psychology course. It is further categorised into ‘Stages in decision making.’
To make this study easier to remember, you can simple refer to it as ‘Hastie et al., 1983′
In this study we will consider how the jury reaches their verdict, specifically how the stages in the decision making process.
It is important to note that this is not a study, but it is a theory.
