‘Faulty’ brains and criminal justice: The challenges of novel neurotechnologies.

Dr Allan McCay of the University of Sydney Law School presented at our August monthly CPD event for his topic ‘Faulty’ brains and criminal justice: The challenges of novel neurotechnologies.

All attendees thoroughly enjoyed Allan’s presentation and were very engaged at the Q&A stage of the event. We look forward to having Allan with us again at the Marbury Chambers Annual 10 Point CPD Event held on the 27th March 2022.
