Nature of evidence subject of discussion

In a legal context, the study of evidence is often equated with the study of the law of evidence. A free public lecture on campus Tuesday will apply concepts from reasoning theory to the process of proof.

Douglas Walton, Assumption University Chair in Argumentation Studies and a distinguished research fellow at the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric , will join Floris Bex, a postdoctoral researcher  at the Argumentation Research Group in the University of Dundee’s School of Computing, for “Evidential Reasoning in the Process of Proof,” Tuesday, September 13, at 4:30 p.m. in the Freed-Orman Centre, Assumption University.
