The persistence of inequality lies at the heart of today’s civil rights dialogue, and Harvard Law students (and others!) interested in exploring the genesis and impact of inequality are in luck. On Saturday, February 26, The Project on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard Law School will hold its Fifth Conference on Law and Mind Sciences, entitled The Psychology of Inequality.

The 2011 PLMS Conference will bring together scholars doing some of the most intriguing and policy-relevant work on the psychology of inequality. Speakers scheduled throughout the day include Adam Benforado (Drexel Law Professor and HLS alum), Amy Cuddy (Harvard Business School), Jon Hanson (HLS), Arnold K. Ho (Ph.D. candidate in Psychology, Harvard), Ichiro Kawachi (Harvard School of Public Health), Aaron Kay (Duke), Eric Knowles (U.C. Irvine), Laura Kubzansky (Harvard School of Public Health), Jaime Napier (Yale), and Kristina Olson (Yale). They will present their work and discuss its implications in a colloquy with leading legal scholars and law students.

The Conference is free and open to the public, and will be held in Austin Hall. All those interested in attending are asked to register online.
