Current Legal Issues, like its sister series Current Legal Problems, is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought. Each colloquium examines how the external discipline is conceived in legal thought and argument, how the law is pictured in that discipline, and analyses points of controversy in the use, and abuse, of extra-legal arguments within legal theory and practice. This book, the latest volume in the Current Legal Issues series, offers an insight into the state of law and neuroscience scholarship today. Focussing on the inter-connections between the two disciplines, it addresses the key issues informing current debates.

Keywords: law; neuroscience; legal thought; legal argument; legal theory; legal practice; inter-connections; key issues
