Apologies may have a role to play in the settlement of legal disputes. Claimants, attorneys, and judges, however, respond to apologies made in the context of litigation in different ways. Judges who understand the nuanced effects that apologies have on the decision making of parties and their attorneys, and who are aware that their own responses may differ from both, will be in a better position to effectively assist in the resolution of legal disputes.
