Panel discussion
The dynamics of the trial: Empirical investigations into courtroom interact

This event will showcase the work of four socio-legal scholars who work on the dynamics of trials and interactions in a range of legal settings. In addition to looking at the performativity of face to face legal proceedings and rituals, it will consider the impact that the introduction of technology has on the credibility and legitimacy of the legal system. Staff, students, visitors and practitioners are all welcome!
