Description

Andreas Kapardis David Farrington, Ian Freckelton

Now in its fourth edition, Psychology and Law is a comprehensive guide to the complex interactions between psychology and criminal law. Andreas Kapardis explores contemporary psycho-legal issues both in and out of the courtroom, from eyewitness testimony, investigative interviewing, jury decision making, and sentencing as a human process, to restorative justice, terrorism, police prejudice and offender profiling.

The book draws upon sources from Europe, North America and Australia to investigate the subjectivity and human fallibility inherent in our systems of justice. It suggests ways of minimising undesirable influences on judicial decision making, and discusses procedures for dealing with witnesses and suspects. Fully revised and with greater emphasis on relevant law, Psychology and Law remains the leading text on legal psychology for students and practitioners in psychology, law, criminology, social work and law enforcement. Each chapter features case studies, chapter outlines, revision questions and further reading to consolidate learning.

This edition features new contributions from two leading scholars in the field; David Farrington of the University of Cambridge, a pioneer of legal psychology in the United Kingdom, shares his recollections of the discipline's formative years in Chapter 1, and Ian Freckelton of Monash University draws on his experience as a barrister to inform discussion of psychologists as expert witnesses in Chapter 7 Fully revised yet more concise, this book remains the authoritative text on legal psychology for students and practitioners in psychology, law, criminology, social work and law enforcement.
