GW Law School Adds Course on TBI


The George Washington University School of Law has added a new course to its curriculum, "The Legal Aspects of Traumatic Brain Injury," taught by Michael V. Kaplen, Esq., the three-term immediate past president of the Brain Injury Association of New York State, beginning in the spring semester 2014. Mr. Kaplen has been appointed to the GW faculty as a professorial lecturer of law.

This course will be a great step in providing necessary legal training to attorneys in representing individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the multitude of legal challenges they and their families face. The George Washington University School of Law will be the first law school in the United States to offer a course in traumatic brain injury. 

This course will review the multi-faceted and idiosyncratic issues that confront the legal profession in the framework of the civil justice system following a TBI. The course will introduce students to the broad and wide-ranging legal implications of TBI in both children and adults and the unique issues that each present. The Brain Injury Association of America is delighted by this development and hopes that other law schools around the country will follow GW's lead.
