From the lab to the legal profession: lessons from neuroscience

The complicated, multidisciplinary, and quickly developing field of neuroscience is not only leading to life-saving advancements in medicine, it is also making its mark on the justice system, revealing new findings that better define pain, intention, and responsibility.
Certainly not a new concept, “neurolawyering” is becoming increasingly more relevant in the legal practice for its many applications:

Even a basic understanding can shape behavior and increase empathy for clients
Mediation techniques that can counter the negative effects of stress and emotional turmoil
Brain scans and biomarkers that are introduced as evidence of competency and culpability
The science of decision-making and understanding juror behavior and negotiation
This exciting new seminar focuses on lawyer wellness and client issues and explores:
--What we are learning about the connection between neuroscience and the law
--Developments in these areas:
Traumatic Brain Injury
Secondary responders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia
