In a courtroom, the audience is made up of jurors who come to the decision-making process with a set of expectations about the legal system. Because of socially influenced stereotypes about how men and women do and should communicate, jurors’ evaluations of attorneys, witnesses, judges, and other players in the case may differ depending on the gender of the communicator. This presentation focuses on the differences in “masculine” and “feminine” communication patterns and the credibility assessments associated with those patterns.
