Faculty Spotlight


Michael Leippe

Dr. Michael R. Leippe is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Graduate Center, CUNY.  Dr. Leippe was recently awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the amount of $348,750, to study the impact of racial and ethnic prejudice against defendants in criminal trials.  The project will recruit jury-eligible citizens from the New York community to participate as "mock-jurors" in a series of experiments involving realistic trial simulations.  Through this, the project seeks better understanding of how and when a defendant’s race/ethnicity influences jury decisions.  It also aims to identify interventions that lessen courtroom bias, thereby providing suggestions to the legal community.
