After the success of last year edition, the European Centre for Law, Science and New Technologies, University of Pavia, in cooperation with the European Association for Neuroscience and Law (EANL), organizes the second edition of Law and Neuroscience Winter School.
The Law and Neuroscience Winter School is a school for lawyers , philosophers and behavioral scientists whose aim is to provide proper information about the increasingly advanced neuroscientific findings and techniques, and to give students the chance to study how neuroscience impacts on different legal systems. On the basis of the previous experience, new courses are provided in order to grant students a more exhaustive knowledge in the field of neuroscience and law.
Courses are mainly focused on Neuroscience, Psychiatry and Genetics (basic scientific information) and on their intersection with the Law, from a comparative perspective. Moreover, break-out sessions and legal labs are increased in order to involve students with a more active role in the interaction with teachers and to put in practice what they learned during theoretical classes.
The school is directed to graduate/master-degree students and PhD Students.
The project is co-financed by the European Commission within LLP Programme, Erasmus IP.
