In addition, the role of “Trial Consultant” is included as an area of professional neuropsychological activity. Although understanding the distinctions between roles and avoiding engaging in multiple roles with one client is important for maintaining ethical conduct, it is also necessary to attend to intrarole conflicts that may interfere with objective presentation of neuropsychological evidence to the trier-of-fact.
