    An emerging field in legal scholarship concerns the impact of emotions on decision making and reactions to decisions that are already made. For example, feelings of happiness, pride, and shame can have an impact on the decision making process. In other instances, individuals are happy or at least content with outcomes that others would find unacceptable. This session brings together a number of scholars who are interested in the impact of emotions on decisions and on reactions to decision. In a round table type format they will discuss their current interests and where this type of research may lead. Important connections to socio-economics will emerge from the discussion.
