【Lecture for Studends and faculty】2016/11/23Insanity and Trial: Defendants with Mental Disabilities in Major Criminal Cases


When those with mental disabilities become perpetrators in criminal cases, how should we view the relationship between illness and crime?

Do those with mental disabilities have sufficient ability to trial? Is psychiatric evaluation a way out for perpetrators?

How does the Court regard and treat people with mental illness who commit major crimes?

What do appointed counsel experience in the Court? The pressure they face and the journey they go through.
