Agenda

Conference: Intoxication, Addiction and the Criminal Law

Conference

Date

Saturday 13th of January 2018

Description

The conference brings together international experts from across law, philosophy and neuroscience to discuss intoxicated and/or addicted offenders. It will investigate the impact of intoxication on the brain of a defendant, and how this links with increased criminal behaviour. Speakers will analyse the legal response to intoxicated offenders who lack ‘mental fault’ due to their state of intoxication, questioning what the legal response should be. The complicating factor of addiction, understanding the physical and mental impacts of the disease, and how (if at all) this effects/should effect criminal responsibility will also be explored.
