How Psychology Integrates With Law

Discuss any aspect of psychology as it integrates with law.

Choose one of the following topics: risk assessments and dangerousness to society, psychopathy, competency to stand trial, eyewitness testimony and trauma impacting memory, PTSD and police, etc. Synthesize knowledge from a variety of respected (peer-reviewed & scholarly) sources. Your answer should contain a problem statement and clear thesis and include both legal and psychological research elements. All terms should be defined, as appropriate, for the reader. Clearly and concisely write the problem statement, thesis, and subsequent hypotheses, ideas, and evidentiary support.
