Special journal issue on psychology-law available for free!

A special issue of Current Directions in Psychological Science showcasing the latest psychological research applied to the legal system has received enormous interest. As a result, the editors and Sage Publications are making the full contents available free to the public through June 15, 2011. The articles cover a wide range of topics of interest to my readers, including competency, violence risk assessment, profiling, false confessions, eyewitness evidence, and jury decision making. You are encouraged to download these articles for later reading, and to freely share these links with colleagues.
