Psychological Aspects of Undue Influence: A LESSON FOR POTENTIAL JURISTS

The purpose of this presentation is to:

1. Identify which of the three "caregiver" behaviors, mentioned in the “Vulnerability Enhancers” section of Turkat's article, best describes the common law crimes of barratry, maintenance and champerty.
2. Draw parallels between manipulative and devious “caregivers” and their legislative and judicial equivalents, some of whom acquiesce to believing they are promoting 'the general Welfare . . . to ourselves and our Posterity'.
3. Develop a personal plan of action based on historical and scriptural precedence.
