Narrative & Metaphor in the Law — Stanford, CA

Stanford Law School

Stanford University Law School presents Narrative and Metaphor in the Law Jan. 30, 2016.

The role of narrative in every dimension of legal theory and practice of the law has been much explored in recent years. Examination of the role of metaphor in the law has been almost as vigorous. The symposium “Narrative and Metaphor in the Law” will bring together outstanding scholars from different dimensions of legal research, with thinkers from anthropology, cognitive psychology, creative writing, the media and public policy for a series of conversations designed to bridge the gap between narrative research and metaphor research in the law. Papers for the symposium will be distributed to attendees for reading in advance, so early registration is advised.  Participants will be eligible to earn CLE credits.
