Overview

This program will focus on the uses of psychological science in the courtroom that impact capital & non-capital defense litigation, with an emphasis on brain function, the effects of a client’s history on brain development and its relevancy to both guilt and mitigation in punishment. The program is co-chaired by attorney John Wright (RPDO), and Dr. Cecil R. Reynolds (Professor Emeritus, Forensic Neuroscience), and will mostly feature faculty from outside of Texas.

This course is funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
