How does research get used and misused in the service of legal decision making and public policy? This plenary begins with an examination of ways that family law has come to rely on research and what we all want to know from research. But given the vast number of potentially useful research articles and studies, how to recognize the quality of research becomes an important frame of reference for family law professionals. In addition to understanding how to use research(ers) to advocate for clients or a policy position, it is equally important to be able to recognize when advocacy crosses over into advocacy bias. Common types of bias will be elucidated using an article that could be understood differently based on its reading and presentation. Suggestions for how to wade into the research world while maintaining the moral and empirical high ground will be offered.
