Psychology and the Law

The NYU Press Psychology of Law book series will provide a series of commissioned books on the major law topics, informing the law with psychological research findings. The books will be commissioned from those with backgrounds in both psychology and the law. They will outline the important issues for legal practice on their given topic, applying psychological research findings to them and thus providing an empirical basis for legal practice. The books are meant for both a law and psychology readership. They may be used as supplemental texts in the core law courses, as well as by legal practitioners, those in psychology and the law programs, forensic psychologists, and those in psychology seeking insight into useful directions for research.
