ANZAPPL NSW Christmas in July

July 30, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

ANZAPPL NSW is proud to host a Christmas in July themed evening seminar on 30th July 2015 at 6:30pm on the topic:

Affective Neuroscience and the application of the Criminal Law

This seminar will be delivered by Kevin Connor SC and will pay particular attention to affective neuroscience in relation to aggression and violence in family, domestic and romantic relationships.


Kevin Connor SC

Kevin Connor is a barrister, and has practiced at the NSW Bar since July 1989. He was appointed Senior Counsel in 2007. Before studying law Kevin did medicine graduating in 1984 (MB BS Hons I). He also did neuroscience research in the laboratory of Professor Mark Rowe at UNSW for which he was awarded a Bachelor of Medical Science. He practiced medicine in hospitals for three years – 1984, 1985 and 1986. In March 1986 Kevin completed the Barristers Admission Board Course (Dip Law). In 1987 and 1988 he was an Associate to Justice Mary Gaudron, who in February 1987 was the first woman to be appointed to the High Court of Australia. Since April 2000 Kevin has been a member of Maurice Byers Chambers. He is interested in law generally, and continues to have an interest in neuroscience, particularly now what might be called “affective neuroscience”. Over the years Kevin has been involved in cases in many different areas of the law, including tax, equity and trusts, commercial disputes, constitutional law, copyright, medical negligence and professional disciplinary matters, and very occasionally, criminal matters.

Doors open at 6pm with the presentation starting at 630pm.  In keeping with the theme, the seminar will be followed by a two course Christmas dinner at 730pm.

This event is likely to be of particular interest to practitioners, students and researchers working at the intersection of psychiatry, psychology and law.
