Welcome from our President
Think about coming to our conference in New Orleans, March 6-8, 2014. The meeting provides an invigorating glimpse of new developments in research, law, and policy across a broad array of topics (e.g., forensic assessment, children and the law, jury decision-making, victims and trauma). Students and young professionals can network with those who have made distinguished contributions; practitioners can keep abreast of the latest clinical and legal advances; and all can enjoy a conference and social program they can tailor to their interests. Please consider joining one of our committees to keep AP-LS responsive to members' professional needs, as well as pressing social problems.
The Minority Affairs Committee of the American Psychology-Law Society has recently produced a series of short (2-3 minute) videos, highlighting the work of AP-LS members and addressing the following topics:
- A basic introduction to the field of psychology and law
- Examples of the real-world impact of the field
- Information about career opportunities
- Information about applying for graduate school in psychology and law
Please share this link with as many individuals as you can who may have an interest in learning more about diversity, psychology and the law! If you have questions about the videos, please contact the Chair of the MAC Communication Sub-Committee, Dr. Sarah Shelton.
