The Centre for Inquiry Okanagan presents Dr. Gary Bauslaugh to speak on humanism, social justice and the power of juries.

The event takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday at the People Place, 101-3402 27th Ave.

In his recent book The Secret Power of Juries, Bauslaugh looks at famous examples of jury nullification, both positive and negative ones, and then examines, in detail, the arguments for and against jury nullification.

The book ends with some suggestions for jurors should they find themselves in a situation where their consciences seem at odds with the law.

Admission to hear Bauslaugh Thursday is free but donations to the People Place are appreciated.
