Dr Allan McCay from the University of Sydney Law School has published a brilliant overview of the implications and impact neurotechnologies could have on the law and the legal profession.  This world-first report commissioned by the Law Society of England and Wales discusses how this technology could be applied to monitoring criminal offenders and lawyers in the future, dissecting legal questions such as the right to 'brain privacy’ and whether the technology could be used by law firms as a way to monitor the brains of their lawyers working on files.

Fascinating tech there. My only concern/s are around what could it be used / misused for and the privacy obligations. I can hear European lawyers screaming "privacy" as we speak (this type of tech would breach about 90% of the GDPR regulations). Oh and lastly I keep flashing back to 'minority report'.
