Emotions in Legal Practices

Registrations are now open to attend a 2-day international conference, Emotions in Legal Practices: Historical and Modern Attitudes Compared, at The University of Sydney 26-28 September 2016.

This interdisciplinary conference aims to stimulate genuine debate and encourage serious reflection on the enduring ‘problem’ of rationality and emotions. Our aim is for scholars and legal practitioners to bring their different disciplinary expertise to reconsider collectively the role of emotions in legal practices both historically and today and, potentially, inform new legal policies.
