50th Anniversary Distinguished Lecture - The Theory and Methods of Legal Futurism

Legal thinking and policymaking is future-oriented, but the methods of picturing the future often draw less attention. During the lecture on 10 January 2019, Barton Beebe, Cheng Yu Tung Visiting Professor presented how legal thinkers talked about the future historically, their current narratives and his insights on how people should address the future, based on the experience of different fields of forecasting.
