Reasonable Doubt Through

Reasonable Science

Unbundle False Confessions; Neuroscience and Intent, 

Collecting Evidence in the Age of HIPAA

April 17th 8:20 - 4:40 

Firespring, 1201 Infinity Court, Lincoln 


Influence Model Interrogation 

Learn how to dissect an interrogation into significant parts -- evidence ploys, statement narrative suggestions and linking giving a suggested narrative-based statement to leniency and linking failure to give a statement other than "I didn't do it" to harsh punishment.

Scenes of a Crime

The documentary about the Adrian Thomas case in which the film makers take the case apart and use the actual interrogation footage to illustrate the influence model. 

Dissecting the Interrogation 

Learn how to properly analyze the confession in relation to contamination and isolating the suspect's volunteered information and comparing it to case evidence. The information that the suspect volunteers is simply wrong and the confession statement is actually evidence of innocence because it doesn't fit the facts of the crime.

Neuroscience and the Law  

Learn how to use the advances in neuroscientific research to vigorously defend your clients. Gain an understanding of the basic neurological medicine and its application in criminal trial courts. You will learn the basic functions of the different parts of the brain, the various types of brain imaging and testing, and how they can be applied to analyze behavior. 

The Developing Brain 

You will gain an understanding of brain development, explain the unique needs of juveniles with brain injury and cognitive disabilities, and discuss the challenges and unique needs those juveniles have when they are also involved in the juvenile justice system.

HIPAA Related Ethical Considerations 

Strict requirements, ambiguous definitions, growing security threats and more can make HIPAA compliance a challenging endeavor for attorneys. Are you fully up to date on the recent changes, compliance traps and new patient rights information? Learn how you can remain effective in everyday practice while ensuring full compliance with HIPAA.
