About this event:
Doctors of the Dark Side is a documentary (directed by Martha Davis) which exposes how psychologists and physicians implemented and covered up the torture of detainees in US-controlled military prisons. The stories of four detainees and the doctors involved in their abuse show how essential doctors have been to the torture program, and how professional bodies for medicine and psychology responded to their members’ involvement in torture.
For almost 200 years, UCL Laws has been one of the leading centres of legal education in the world. Recognised as offering an outstanding educational experience to our students, we combine a strong theoretical foundation in the law with practical teaching from world-leading academics and practitioners.
