Our biannual neurolaw conference showcases talks from experts in several aspects of neurolaw. Topics include responsibility, punishment, prediction, rehabilitation, brain death, genetics, competence, policy-making, and ethics -- all with an eye toward understanding how cutting edge neuroscience will touch the current practice of law.
Our most recent conference was held at Baylor College of Medicine. Speakers included:
- David Eagleman, PhD - Neuroscience and the Law
- J. Ray Hays, JD, PhD - Neuroscience: The Witness on the Stand
- Daniel Goldberg, JD - Memory Fingerprinting and the Risks of Undue Prejudice
- Amy McGuire, JD, PhD - The Biology of Behavior: Lessons from Genetics
- Joseph Kass, JD, MD - Capacity to Consent: Lessons from Traumatic Brain Injury
- Amir Halevy, MD, JD - Brain Death: A Current View of the Law, Science and Ethics
- William Winslade, JD, PhD - Manipulating Hormones to Change Criminal Behavior: Lessons from Castration
Our conferences earn 3.5 hours of CLE credit. All proceeds fund the experimental work of the Initiative.
