In 1996 using techniques from model theory and intersection theory, Hrushovski obtained a generalisation of the Lang-Weil estimates. Subsequently the estimates have found applications in group theory, algebraic dynamics and algebraic geometry. We shall discuss a geometric proof of the non-uniform version of these estimates.
