‘Emotion is pervasive in law, we just don’t see it’
According to Dr Senthorun Raj, the prescriptive, dogmatic way in which legal professionals are trained to think ignores the critical role of emotion embedded into every aspect of the legal system.
The author of “Feeling Queer Jurisprudence: Injury, Intimacy, Identity” joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Lawyers Weekly show to unpack the importance of emotional literacy in creating a more just and inclusive legal framework.
Dr Raj sheds light on the nexus between emotion and LGBTIQ rights, how the law world has responded to his work, and the ways in which tertiary institutions and senior practitioners can better equip the lawyers of tomorrow.
