Neuroscience and Law Center
Advances in neuroscience have prompted the legal profession to question long-held notions
about criminal culpability, free will, thought, behavior, and pain.
Fordham’s Neuroscience and Law Center will explore how these advances affect the legal system.
The Neuroscience and Law Center will be dedicated to
using a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach
to examine the current and potential uses of
advancing legal scholarship and the use of
neuroscience in legal circles
providing information to academics, lawyers, and the
public about legally relevant advances in neuroscience
Through innovative programs and in collaboration with academic partners, the Neuroscience and Law Center aims to be a premier resource of evidence-based information about the increasing prevalence of neuroscience in 21st-century courtrooms.
