Professor Matthew Fraidin is quoted in The Washington Post arguing that psychology research supports opening dependency courts.
"Is there a systemic problem? We can’t find out,” said Professor Fraidin. "Would Maryland do better at this if
they knew their decision-making process would be visible to outsiders?
Of course they would, just like the rest of us. The psychology research
says decision-makers are more careful and deliberate, and seek out more
information, if they know they’ll have to justify their decision later.”
Professor Matthew Fraidin is an associate professor at the UDC David A.
Clarke School of Law and a visiting professor at Georgetown University
Law Center. He also co-directs the HIV/AIDS Legal Clinic. Click here to read his full bio.
