Loyola Law School hosts the annual meeting of The Society for Evolutionary Analysis in Law (SEAL) on Friday, Feb. 11 and Saturday, Feb. 12. SEAL is a scholarly association dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary exploration of issues at the intersection of law, biology and evolutionary theory, improving the models of human behavior relevant to law and promoting the integration of life science and social science perspectives on law-relevant topics through scholarship, teaching, and empirical research. This annual meeting will be SEAL XII, and will include more than 15 presentations by scholars from various disciplines.
The keynote address at this year's SEAL annual meeting will be made by David Sloan Wilson, SUNY Distinguished Professor, Departments of Biology and Anthropology, Binghamton University.

His books include: Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives; Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion and the Nature of Society; Unto Others: The Evolution and Psychology of Unselfish Behavior; and The Neighborhood Project: Using Evolution to Improve my City, One Block at a Time, which will be published by Little, Brown in July 2011.
