Science and the Law: How Science Can Inform Law and Policy.
WHEN Wednesday | 11 Nov, 4:00 PM-5:00 PM
WHERE Zoom online
Professor Stephanie Bair will speak on “Science and the Law: How Science Can Inform Law and Policy” at the next World of Law event hosted by the BYU Law School.
Professor Bair’s research focuses on mind sciences, innovation, and the law. Her recent research has explored how poverty impacts decision-making and what this means for innovation, criminal law, and distributive justice. Prior to joining BYU’s faculty, Professor Bair was the resident academic fellow with Stanford’s Program in Neuroscience and Society (SPINS), a joint initiative of Stanford Law School and Stanford Department of Psychology. Professor Bair holds a JD (cum laude) from Harvard Law School, a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Utah School of Medicine, and an undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Prince Edward Island.
This is a great opportunity for undergraduates to hear BYU Law professors present monthly on a variety of law-related topics and to meet the Dean and Director of BYU Law Admissions.
