Neurolaw: Combining the Science of the Brain and the Law

Saturday, February 8, 2020 09:30to15:00
Chancellor Day Hall NCDH 101 (Durnford Classroom), 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA
Free, but RSVP required.

Join us for the McGill Journal of Law and Health's 12th annual colloquium, which will feature two panel discussions with experts in the emerging and exciting field of neurolaw:

  • William Wannyn (PhD candidate, U de Montréal)
  • Professor Emmanuelle Bernheim (UQÀM)
  • Professor Daniel Ambrosini, BCL/LLB'07 (McMaster U)
  • Me. Adrian Thorogood BCL/LLB'13 (McGill Genome Quebec Innovation Centre)


Growing interest in the use of neuroscience evidence in legal settings is leading to an abundance of debates at the intersection of law and health science. Interesting discussions are emerging, surrounding the impact of neuroscience on the law and the legal and bioethical implications of neuroscience.

Our speakers will present from a range of perspectives, including neuroscience research and technologies, neuroethics, neuro data in the justice system, and related shortfalls and critiques.

A small breakfast will be served between 9:30-10am. A catered lunch will be served between our two panels.
