This Article examines three competing models for lawyer decision making. Reviewing literature drawn from other disciplines, Professor McDiarmid applies each model to a particular lawyer decision task and provides a critique both of applicability and of the underlying assumptions of the models themselves. The Article concentrates on the problem of prediction in the face of uncertainty.
