Topics in Law and Psychology (20339). 2 or 3 units. This seminar is an introduction to areas of overlap between the field of psychology and law. It will touch upon the key areas of interface, including forensic science; eyewitness identification, lie detection, interrogation, decision making by judges and juries; issues of explicit and implicit racism/sexism; media violence; and the psychology consent. For each class, two or three students will write a short position paper (1 or 2 pages) on the readings for that week. In some cases, there are several topics covered, and students can choose the one they want to write about. Each student will then give brief presentation of the position paper at the beginning of the class. A 20-30 page paper on some topic of the material is an option. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. Also PSYC 626a. T.R. Tyler.
