The Data Speaks: A Closer Look at Gun Violence

Thursday October 17, 2013, 5:00 to 6:00 PM

Ares Auditorium (Room 164)


Discussions of how to stem gun violence are often political and impassioned. Join us to hear a renowned expert discuss the problem from a more pedantic point of view: one based on the evidence.


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.


Registration is required for this event. Visitor parking is available for a fee at several parking garages near campus. A visitor parking map is available here . 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.
