Novel Justice: Evaluating Police Uses of Force by Seth Stoughton

February 23, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Virtual

Novel Justice is a book event series hosted by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. We invite authors to discuss recently published criminal justice books and to engage in Q&A with faculty and students. Seth W. Stoughton is an Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law and an Associate Professor (Affiliate) in the university's Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice. His book, Evaluating Police Uses of Force, explores a critical but largely overlooked facet of the difficult and controversial issues of police violence and accountability: how does society evaluate use-of-force incidents? Join us for a conversation and Q&A with Stoughton about his work. Wilson Center Director Brandon Garrett will moderate. The book can be purchased through NYU Press, Use code FORCEFUL30 for a special 30% discount. Registration is required. RSVP here: The first five people to register will receive a special Wilson Center gift. Sponsored by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. For more information, contact the Marlyn Dail at
