Symposium Announcement

The Mind of a Child:  The Relationship Between Brain Development, Cognitive Functioning, and  Accountability Under the Law

ChildrenprojectOn March 10-11, 2005, the Justice for Children Project, in conjunction with the Ohio State Criminal Law Journal and the Center for Law, Policy, and Social Science, will sponsor a conference entitled The Mind of a Child: The Relationship Between Brain Development, Cognitive Functioning, and Accountability Under the Law. Unlike other symposia, which generally have focused on social scientific explanations for juvenile behavior and crime, the interdisciplinary symposium will look to recent developments in the "hard" science of brain development and function and the implications of that research for concepts of mens rea.
