Faculty of Law Twilight Seminar Series - 'Innovation, Creativity and the Brain'

Dean of Law at University of California, Irvine (UCI) Professor L. Song Richardson

You're invited to attend a forthcoming Faculty of Law Twilight Seminar.

Abstract

Innovators and entrepreneurs trade on brainpower for a living. The brain is a beautiful and only partially-understood organ; far more complex than most man-made machines.  This seminar will introduce you to critical unconscious mental processes that influence decision-making, perceptions and judgments in ways that affect innovation and creativity. The session will end with tools to equip people to increase the likelihood of positive outcomes. This seminar will appeal to those in the legal profession and beyond.
