New Program in Law, Brain Sciences, and Behavior

Vanderbilt Law School is launching a new interdisciplinary program, the Weaver Family Program in Law, Brain Sciences, and Behavior, funded by a $3.85 million endowment from the Glenn M. Weaver Foundation.

Owen Jones will direct the new program, which will sponsor faculty research aimed at exploring law and human behavior across a broad spectrum of medical, biological, and social science fields, and organize and host symposia and distinguished lectures featuring leading researchers working at the intersection of law, brain sciences, and behavior.
