How the Legal System Perpetuates Injustice

On 16th of March I posted a presentation by Jon Hanson - professor at Harvard Law School, creator of the website The Situationist. He gave a small talk on 'A Legal System for Irrational Beings'. He shared more of his insights with The Big Think on the influence of law by consumer behavioralists answering a question 'How has policy makers responded to your research?'. I agree with him that the application of consumer behavior research to law could be multiple. The examples he mentions are more applicable to public law and its problems which are the starting point for most researchers combining these two disciplines. I'm convinced that consumer behavior could largely influence private law, as well, especially consumer law and I'm eagerly awaiting more interrelations between the consumer behavior researchers and law.
