Please join UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors for an Open Mind/#WOW program with Judge Katherine Mader (Ret.), author of Inside The Robe: A Judge's Candid Tale of Criminal Justice in America.


Inside the Robe shines a bright spotlight into the hidden folds of the judging world.

The old saw is that judges merely “follow the law.” Yet following the law can produce wildly different results depending upon each judge’s background, politics, and life experiences. Even the courthouse floor to which a case is assigned can mean the difference between prison and freedom.

Jonathan Sherin, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health will join Judge Mader in discussion.


Elyn Saks, Ph.D, Orrin B. Evans Distinguished Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences, USC Gould School of Law will moderate the discussion.

Wednesday, November 18

5:00 - 6:00 pm PT

Registration is required for this free live private Zoom event.
