We are delighted to introduce a new blogpost series at the intersection of law and genetics. John Rumbold is currently a PhD candidate at RUSS, Centre for Law, Ethics and Society at Keele University and also a Lecturer in Law at Wolverhampton University. His thesis is on the provision of expert evidence to refute or support sleepwalking defence. His chosen methodology is qualitative interviews of expert witnesses.

His other research interests are in the intersection of law and biomedical science, including neurolaw, behavioural genetics, and patient activist groups. He has presented at the SLSA Conference in 2012 and will be presenting at the International Academy of Law and Mental Health Conference 2013 and the British Sleep Society 2013. He has co-authored a paper on ‘Diabetic Drivers, Hypoglycaemic Unawareness, and Automatism’ published in the Criminal Law Review, November 2011.
