Bias: Conscious and Unconscious in Judicial Adjudication
Wed. 9 November 2016, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm AEDT
On behalf of Symmetra and Herbert Smith Freehills, we have the pleasure to present: an address by a South African jurist of international repute, Mr Justice Dennis Davis.
Justice Davis’ address will focus upon racist, sexist and political influences articulated or hidden in key judgements from the courts of South Africa, UK, USA and other jurisdictions.
Justice Davis is a judge of the High Court of South Africa, based in Cape Town, and is also Judge President of the South African Competition Appeals Court.
Justice Davis also holds a professorial post at the University of Cape Town where he teaches tax law, constitutional law, and competition theory. He also has been a visiting professorial lecturer at the universities of Harvard, Melbourne, Toronto, New York, Brown, Florida, and Georgetown.
This is likely to be a most stimulating and thought-provoking event and we look forward to your attendance.
