Keywords: criminal law, applied ethics, expertise, normative ethics, parasomnias, responsibility, sleep, testimony

Abstract

In 2008, the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics dedicated an entire volume to ethical issues in sleep medicine. Texts published in the “Educating for Professionalism” and “Law, Policy, and Society” sections of this volume serve as theorical starting points to establish a correlation between lack of medical training in sleep disorders and ethical dilemmas encountered by expert witnesses during trials related to problematic automatic behaviours that occurred during REM sleep.
