Speaker: John Crichton, Chair of RCPsych in Scotland
In Scotland’s enlightenment a bride stabs her husband on their wedding night; a nobleman kills his brother; a veteran kills his devoted wife – who then pleads mercy for him on her deathbed. Over centuries the law has recognised that those with mental disorders may not be held accountable for their actions – but even if acquitted they may not necessarily go free.
This talk will consider the origins of Scotland’s ‘insanity’ law and what ancient themes are still relevant today.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Forensic Psychiatry are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
