This Thursday (October 17, 2013), Stanford Law professor John Donohue III will give a public lecture at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law on “The Data Speaks: A Closer Look at Gun Violence.” Donohue is the leading expert on empirical analysis of gun violence; his talk is the inaugural event for the College of Law’s QuantLaw program (headed by our own Jane Bambauer). You can register for the event on-line, and you can also learn more about QuantLaw. Here’s some additional information about Professor Donohue’s talk:
Stanford Law Professor John Donohue III has conducted large-scale statistical studies of gun violence and the impact of various laws and policies and is frequently sought after for his expertise and analysis of the problem. After the shootings of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others in 2011, he was invited by the New York Times to write an editorial on reducing gun violence.

Professor Donohue’s lecture is the inaugural event of Arizona Law’s QuantLaw Program, offering a variety of classes and opportunities for data-driven research on social, scientific, and legal issues.
