Academic Activities

Dr. Ben-Noon studies and publishes in a wide variety of fields - some purely legal, while others combine legal issues with political science, philosophy, psychology, and so on. For example, for the past 20 years, Ben-Noon studied civil obedience, helping change the observation of law violations from the moral perspective to the political angle. For the past decade, Dr. Ben-Noon has been studying decision making processes, in the court and as a whole, focusing on recent theories in the field (particularly by Prof Daniel Kahneman and Dan Arieli) and empirical studies in neuro-economics and neurology as a whole. Published a year ago, his article on judges' cognitive biases is widely read and extensively cited.
