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.

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.

Counsel for Discipline 

Ethics in the Practice of Law: Trends, Issues, and Tips.

Confirmation Bias and Tunnel Vision

Confirmation bias tends to bolster a hypothesis by seeking consistent evidence while disregarding inconsistent evidence. Tunnel vision leads to conclusions that feel right but are wrong and gives us answers we expect while obscuring the truth. You will learn how these two phenomena can affect everyone, law enforcement, media, and even criminal defense attorneys.

Junk Science and Wrongful Convictions

Learn to recognize the factors that contribute to wrongful convictions. Scientific research plays a vital role in developing training, policies, and procedures for individuals working in the criminal justice field. The information used should be up-to-date, accurate, and fact-based, overstating its value can and has led to wrongful convictions.
