PH.D Psychology & Law
The Psychology-Law concentration started in 1970 as a program in Correctional Psychology. As general academic knowledge and professional applications broadened to many psychological applications to legal issues, the concentration became defined as Psychology-Law. The concentration is seated fully within clinical psychology. The faculty members are all licensed clinical psychologists and all graduate students received their core training in clinical psychology.
The Psychology-Law concentration draws on three interrelated components. First, all students have educational experiences in clinical-forensic psychology, which encompasses the criminal and civil issues of competencies, mental state at time of offense, mitigation in sentencing, personal injury assessments, witness preparation, jury selection, delinquency, and psychology in correctional settings. Second, students develop their own related research programs in conjunction with a mentor. Third, supervised practional applications are developed on these topics.
