Neurolaw, the inter-disciplinary study of neuroscience and law, establishes a relationship of Brain with Law. The achievements of neuroscience shall co-operate better formulation of law and judicial decisions for a fairer judicial system. Emerging from the study of the human nervous system as a new legal phenomenon in the 1990s, Neurlaw promises to address various age-old legal questions and is fast expanding its frontier in diversified areas of law.

The emerging discipline of Neurolaw is strange and diversely combined. Neurolaw tries to cross-fertilise the theories and values of neuroscience and law, towards an objective which is common to both the disciplines, as well as charting new terms to expand frontiers of both the disciplines. Neuroscience and Law are nearing close to serve the new objectives than what these disciplines traditionally set so far. However, the term and concept of "Neurolaw" give a challenging meaning and hence the foundation of Neurolaw in jurisprudence has to be analysed through the prism of jurisprudence. The scope of this work is to analyse the foundational ideas and concepts Neurolaw from the standpoint of jurisprudence. The analysis of the foundational ideas and concepts of Neurolaw, from different schools of jurisprudence, can contribute to the clarity of objectives of Neurolaw as a discipline of study. The analysis from the vintage of different schools of jurisprudence, which is so far absent in various Neurolaw-literatures, leads to a promising conclusion that, the more Neurolaw engages with jurisprudence, the more it can contribute to different schools of jurisprudence and thereby can find own limitations and expansions to stand as a unique discipline to contribute to the knowledge tradition.
