people vs. persons

I find myself using "persons" in my academic writing more and more these days. I couldn't tell you why I do it - it just seems right to me. Native English speakers, do you use "persons"? When? How? Tell me all your thoughts on this matter! Please do indicate what type of English you are a native speaker of.
