About

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
  • Pharmacological trends and addiction
  • Mindfulness & brain function under stress
