Sinopoli Lecture: Justifying the Jury Mar 15, 2018 from 03:00 PM to 04:30 PM Kerr Hall Room 693,

Why should we have any confidence in the jury's reliability? This talk by Melissa Schwartzberg, Silver Professor of Politics at New York University, will examine the egalitarian commitments that underlie our beliefs about the justice of jury verdicts, and how these commitments, and their challenges, shape how we justify democracy more generally.
