This chapter examines the issue of warrants for expertise based on analysis of actual meeting of an institutional review board (IRB). It suggests that IRB decisions were in part the product of a warranting process, through which members decided who had the most persuasive claim to knowledge on the matter at hand. It also highlights the importance of attention to warrants in providing a fuller explanation of group decision making.
