Kerngegevens van evenement Legal Research Master's Conference: Empathy on Trial
Datum 13 april 2018
Tijd 13:00 -17:45
Janskerkhof 3

Ultimately, the conference discusses and answers this question: What can Law & Literature teach us about the role and relevance of empathy in legal education and legal practice? 

This debate incorporates many interesting questions, such as: is there a causal link between empathy and justice? If there is, should it be necessary for legal education to incorporate training on empathy? And, a question that is of particular interest for this conference, if there is a role for empathy in law, can it be aided by the use of literary texts, as suggested by some Law and Literature scholars? We invite you to join us in debating these questions at the upcoming LRM Conference on the 13th of April 2018. Especially in light of the seemingly increasing divide in today’s world, this topic is highly relevant. We encourage everyone, including judges, lawyers, academics, and students alike to come and share their ideas.
