Professor Conor Gearty to preside over mock trial at LSE

Professor Conor Gearty will act as the judge in a mock trial on Tuesday 10 March hosted by STICERD and the Department of Economics, in partnership with the Department of Law and School of Public Policy at LSE. The event, titled The People vs The Social Sciences, will explore what economists, political scientists, policy makers, lawyers and social science researchers offer us in terms of a way forward and what information and tools, can, should or have they have provided the people, in order to tackle some of the complex problems arising in society today. The trial will decide whether the social sciences, as an area of research, commentary and investigation has failed society.

The trial will take place at 6:30pm with the verdict at 8pm in The Old Theatre at LSE.
