Bias: Conscious and Unconscious in Judicial Adjudication

Symmetra has great pleasure in inviting you to an address by a South African jurist of international repute, Justice Dennis Davis.  This event will be hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills.

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.

Please feel free to pass this invitation to any legal colleagues who may be interested. 

 Seating is limited, so please reserve your place today.
