Psychology and law are interconnected – doing justice needs to be grounded in an understanding of human behavior and mind.

The course covers general psychological phenomena affecting justice; Stops and searches; Lineup identification; Witness testimony and witness statements; Police statements; Advocate’s persuasion; Consciousness and free will; Role of individual differences in the process; and Using science (Psychology, neuroscience, genetics) to improve the justice process.
You will learn from a multi-disciplinary expert with expertise in law, psychology, genetics and mind influences, and over 10 years of experience in delivering training in these areas.
