Nearly 400 lawyers and psychologists from all over the world attended the first-of-its kind National Criminal Defense Forum on Forensic Mental Health and The Law earlier this month to hear authorities on a range of issues in criminal law. Among the topics discussed were the evolution of criminal competence to stand trial, false confessions, not guilty by reason of insanity, preparation of experts and problems that may stem from a defendant’s language impairment.
