Description


The SCCJR is pleased to announce the 2017 Annual Lecture, presented by Prof Tracey Meares from Yale University. It is organised by the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research and the Justice Collaboratory.

It will take place on October 11th in Lecture Theatre 1, Appleton Tower, University of Edinburgh at 5.45pm.

Prof Meares’s lecture is titled Thinking Through the “Public” in Public Legitimacy. She says:Much of the literature exploring the relationship between social psychological theories of procedural justice and public legitimacy makes central legal authorities and individual perceptions of those authorities. In this lecture I would like to decenter legal authorities in the conversation about public legitimacy, and also to think about what it would mean to make “community” a more important unit of analysis of study in the public legitimacy space.’

Prof Meares is the Walton Hale Hamilton Professor of Law at Yale University. She co-directs the Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School, which plays a central role in a new federal initiative to build trust and confidence in the US criminal justice system.

The event is free of charge and open to all.
