Zara is a 2L at Georgetown Law. She is interested in civil rights law and has worked as an intern at a boutique employment law firm. She received a B.A. in psychology and a double minor in anthropology and political science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Zara's senior thesis involved studying dehumanization and she is interested in learning more about bias and the concept of self within a legal context. 

Eric Martinez is a PhD student in brain and cognitive sciences at MIT, and a research fellow at the Legal Priorities Project. Eric is interested in understanding (a) how legal experts and laypeople understand and interpret legal concepts, (b) how this relates to issues of moral and social cognition and (c) how these insights might be harnessed in order to improve the legal system for all of our benefit.
