Forensic Psychology, Psychology and Law

Forensic psychology concerns crime scene investigations, profiling, and other applications of psychology to the solution of crimes. In contrast, the area called "Psychology and Law" encompasses a wide variety of ways in which psychology interacts with the legal system. For example, psychologists interested in psychology of law study witness selection, eyewitness identification, memory and false memory in courtroom testimony, prejudicial factors influencing courtroom deliberations, and similar issues.
