Before COVID-19, some already perceived a crisis in the relationship between truth-seeking, science, justice and public power. Now we are living through a disruption that may restructure the social order for a generation or more. Hear and engage with a thoughtful perspective on the role of participants in the justice and legal system during and beyond the current stage of this crisis, informed by diverse insights from historians and political analysts, to game theorists and psychologists. This presentation and Q&A will explore and engage:

  • How does the COVID-19 crisis expose the pivotal importance of the legal/justice system?
  • What can participants do now, to preserve and improve justice in our society, and fulfill their duties to the public?
  • Why is an ethical legal culture so important in a time of pandemic?
  • What might the “new normal” look like – and how can justice system participants shape it?
  • What is the relationship between law, truth, and science in the face of a deadly virus?
  • How can we help our neighbours through our work?
