It is hard to know exactly what the future holds for law and neuroscience. But it is a fair bet that the future will look different, perhaps markedly so, than the neurolaw of today. How can one keep up with this change? In this brief essay, I provide a series of resources for those interested in expanding their knowledge of fundamental law and neuroscience issues, as well as keeping up to date on cutting-edge innovations.

The short piece includes relevant links and resources, suitable for lawyers, judges, scientists and anyone who wants to keep up with the growing field of law and neuroscience.

Keywords: law, neuroscience, neurolaw, evidence, criminal, civil, science, psychiatry, psychology
