We will look at the impact of social science research and evidence in a variety of contexts, including trademark, damages, school segregation, and tort liability. For example, how should courts use survey evidence in determining whether trademarks cause confusion in the marketplace? The social sciences include the disciplines of psychology, economics, sociology, and anthropology. Students should expect to gain sufficient scientific literacy to critically read and apply social science research.
