Dr Andra le Roux-Kemp announced the winner of the Young Scholars Symposium for Law and Science (Pavia, Italy)

The European Centre for Law, Science and New Technologies (ECLT) recently hosted the third Young Scholars Symposium for Law and Science in Pavia, Italy. The Centre is an interdepartmental research center at the University of Pavia and aims (inter alia) to promote scientific dialogue between legal scholars and scientists, and to increase awareness of the theoretical and practical interrelationship between law and science.

A panel of established international academics and researchers (from the USA and Europe) selected eight young scholars to present at the Young Scholars Symposium. The selected presenters represented jurisdictions from across the globe and the topics of their presentations were equally diverse, ranging from the regulation of nanotechnologies, bioethics, genetics and cyber forensics. Dr Andra le Roux-Kemp (part-time lecturer at the Faculty of Law) spoke about the potential role of behavioural genetics in the post-conviction stages of South African criminal proceedings. Le Roux-Kemp was announced the winner of the Symposium. She is currently residing in Berlin as an ema2sa scholar at the Free University of Berlin, Germany.
