View Profile Derek Rucker My primary research focuses on the study of attitudes, persuasion, and social influence. Within this broad area of research, I have primarily been interested in two topics. First, I am interested in understanding the role of metacognitive processes in persuasion and social influence. This has led to several streams of research focusing on how people assess their attitudes following persuasive attempts and, in particular, the effects of such assesments on how certain people are in their attitudes.
The conference will deal with themes such as: How might we integrate the increased use of social media into a consumer law course? What innovations can or should we bring to the consumer law classroom to reflect popular culture?
Do we need more consumer regulation, or less? Are there innovative ways to resolve consumer problems, other than the typical court and alternative dispute resolution systems? How do we deal with intra-state and intra-national consumer transactions?
Is online dispute resolution good or bad?
What should we emphasize? What should we delete? International consumer law developments and innovations. Recent developments in substantive US consumer law. The view from the trenches—what do practicing attorneys see as the current consumer law issues.
Papers and presentations are invited on any of the above themes, or any other topic related to the teaching of consumer law. Proposed topics may discuss the law of any jurisdiction; however, the emphasis is on topics of interest to law school professors and those with an interest in entering academia.
