Lawrence Chui's research focuses on improving auditors' judgment and decision performance. Specifically, he aims to develop tools that help auditors assess fraud risk more effectively. Most recently, he has examined the differences in mindset between financial statement auditors and forensic specialists to identify factors that would improve an auditor's ability to address potential fraud in company financial statements.

Chui summarizes his teaching philosophy in three words: professionalism, enthusiasm and compassion. Professionalism includes having the expertise in the field, exploring new teaching methods and preparing students for their careers. Enthusiasm requires the incorporation of humor, real world examples and a holistic view of business to bring to life the subject of accounting. Compassion is about having high expectations for students, learning about their lives and motivating them to overcome challenges.
