Fellow, Center for Law and Biosciences, Stanford Law School

Roland Nadler is a 2015-2016 Fellow at the Center for Law and the Biosciences. He works on legal and ethical challenges posed by the increasing sophistication of neuroscience. In particular, he focuses on the conceptual evolution of legal doctrine in response to shifting popular and scientific understandings of the brain, encompassing issues of harm and injury, guilt and responsibility, autonomy and justice. Roland studied philosophy and cognitive science as an undergraduate at Harvard before working with the National Core for Neuroethics at the University of British Columbia, where he completed an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies. He recently completed his JD at Stanford Law School. Roland has served as a member of the Student & Postdoctoral Fellow Committee of the International Neuroethics Society since its formation, and previously worked as an external consultant with the MacArthur Research Network on Law & Neuroscience. In 2016, he will serve as a law clerk for the District of Maine.
