Happiness + Law

Benjamin Perryman


What is happiness, how is it measured, and why is it relevant to law? Join Schulich Fellow and Trudeau Scholar Benjamin Perryman for a discussion of the science of happiness – emerging from behavioural economics, positive psychology, and neuroscience – and its application to constitutional law.

Using a variety of scenarios, such as police carding, assisted dying, and the provision of social benefits, Benjamin will explain how research on subjective well-being can be used to critique, challenge, and change how constitutional rights are interpreted and applied in Canada.

Presented by Benjamin Perryman, Schulich Fellow and Trudeau Scholar, Schulich School of Law on March 23, 2016.
