10/25/2009 -- Group B: Part I (2- 3p.m.): From Mathematics to Law (Prof. Eugene Volokh, UCLA School of Law)
This is the first part of the meeting (2-3 p.m.): Some thoughts on using math and science thinking and math and science knowledge far outside math and the sciences, from Eugene Volokh, who?s a professor at UCLA School of Law. Eugene started as a math buff, shifted to computer programming, and eventually turned to law as well as popular writing about the law (he?s the founder of The Volokh Conspiracy weblog, http://volokh.com). Before going into teaching, he clerked for Justice Sandra Day O?Connor at the U.S. Supreme Court.
