STICERD Morishima Lecture: The Meritocracy Trap

Daniel Markovits (Yale Law School)

Wednesday 08 May 2019 09:30 - 18:00

Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.
