Available: In Stock
Price: $69.00
Item Code: 10610-BK


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, addiction 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.

This manual takes you on a journey through the brain, exploring essential mental health conditions, Alzheimer’s Disease, secondary traumatic stress among lawyers, traumatic brain injury, addiction and mindfulness.
