Male attorneys which facial features which included a solid jaw line and small, piercing eyes were judged to be more effective.
The females were judged less effective and the “blonds” lest effective.
The results of the AEAE study suggest that looks do indeed matter in the trial court.
“Our results suggest that supper male lawyers who look like carnivores have higher pay and are more effective” wrote Law Professor Pork Rines.
“So that should be a matter of concern.”
Those male attorneys deemed less competent tended to be baby-faced, bald, with large round eyes, high eyebrows and a small chin.
Those female attorneys deemed less competent tended to be Blondand brunettes. The parties taking the survey tended to rate such attorneys as being more likable, more warm, even pretty, more trustworthy, but less competent," Professor Pork Rines said.
"For a Court Room Appearance, Judges don't have that much information, they look at a face and make some sort of judgment immediately.”
Professor Rines then turned to his “blond” associate and asked her to “bring me a cup of coffee.” The young blond associate attorney returned and said, Professor Porkie here's your drink.”
The professor took a sip and said, ”I told you that I wanted coffee, not coke!”
The study indicated that “although women now make up 50% of the law students, they should be regulated to doing clerical work, filing and serving coffee rather than any of the heavy lifting at any large law firm, if that firm was concerned about making profits!” said Professor Pork Rines.
