Provides students with an overview of the way law and judicial systems affect the individual and how various theories reflect on the process of internalisation of law. Introduces students to psychological and psychoanalytic theories to enable them to assess why some people internalise social prohibitions and other do not. Students will be encouraged to think critically about how psychoanalysis, psychology and psychiatry can help legal practitioners and assess how new studies in the domain of neuroscience contribute to legal reasoning.
