Abstract:     
This short article explains common cognitive barriers that impede settlements by distorting disputants’ analysis of their legal case or their bargaining decisions. The discussion covers selective perception, optimistic overconfidence, loss aversion and reactive devaluation. The article also gives prescriptive advice about how mediators can overcome these obstacles.
