Dr. Myrstol discusses procedural justice.
Dr. Brad Myrstol, Justice faculty, presented at an Alaska Court System training for newer judges on January 11, 2013.  One portion of the training focused on "Maintaining Impartiality"; Dr. Myrstol presented findings from his article, "Public Perceptions of Judicial Fairness," published in the Alaska Justice Forum Summer 2012 29(2) issue.

In the article, Dr. Myrstol and his co-author, Dr. Cory R. Lepage, Justice faculty, discussed procedural justice and local courts. Their study examined data from the 2009 Alaska Community Survey and responses to questions about public perceptions of fairness of judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and police.
