Dr Cedric Gilson
Visiting Fellow, Westminster Law School, University of Westminster London
Dr Cedric Gilson obtained his doctorate in law at the University of Westminster in 2007, after a career change from a supporting role in clinical medicine, teaching and research in NHS Hospitals and university medical schools. As well as professional qualifications gained during his work, he obtained a Master of Science degree from the University of Reading (part-time, 1973) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Technology at the University of Dundee (by Distance Learning, 1986).
His current interest is in the incommensurability of expert scientific opinion evidence in legal contexts, especially how it is received in courts. He authored The Law-Science Chasm. Bridging Law’s Disaffection with Science as Evidence (Quid Pro Books: New Orleans, Louisiana (2012)), which is the embodiment of his thesis.
He also calls himself an ‘inadvertent methodologist’. Having returned to study after his erstwhile career, conscientiously he becomes as much concerned about approaches to research, reasoning and construction of arguments as in the actual explorations.
