The College of Liberal Arts and Education will host a faculty forum, “Moral Luck and the Justification of Legal Punishment."

At the forum, Dr. Yi Tong, lecturer of philosophy at UW-Platteville, will explain the phenomenon of moral luck and its legal implications, in particular as it is related to the justification of differential legal responses.

Following Tong’s presentation, Dr. Patrick Solar, associate professor of criminal justice at UW-Platteville, will deliver some real-life stories that speak to the moral luck perspective.

The forum is free and open to university students, faculty, staff and community members. Refreshments will be provided.

The LAE Faculty Forum Series, a program instituted in the fall of 2004, is sponsored by UW-Platteville’s College of LAE. The purpose of the forum is to allow faculty to present information in their research areas. Presenters tailor their presentations to a general audience.
