On the web site you’ll also find a downloadable version of this programme as well as the original conference CFP. Please download it, print it out, and post it throughout your departmental corridor. More importantly, submit an abstract, or at least come along and join us, k? Oh, and note that the programme may still change – what’s shown above is just the current draft version – so please check back on the conference web site for the definitive version.

As you can see, a total of seven papers will be presented over the course of two days. All papers will be critical of some aspect of Stephen Morse’s work in neurolaw. For instance, Jeanette Kennett and I will present a paper (co-authored with Anke Snoek) which challenges Morse’s views on drug addiction and criminal responsibility. But don’t tell him that yet, since we’d like to catch him by surprise. ;)

After each paper, Morse will get first right of response, and the floor will then be open for further questions and discussion with the audience. The conference will end with a short presentation where Morse will offer his reflections on how the papers have challenged his thinking.
