Summary Presented at the 1982 APA [American Psychological Association] Convention in Washington, D.C., the papers in this volume are the work of five leading scholars in psychology and the law: Bruce Sales, Donald Bersoff, David Rosenhan, Shari Seidman Diamond, and John Monahan. These scholars probe the increasingly complex interaction of law and psychology and present two major themes: the increased regulation affecting the science and practice of psychology and the many ways in which psychology illuminates the behavioral assumptions inherent in the legal system. /// The thrust of these papers is that the interaction between law and psychology will increase. This interaction will be reciprocal, with the law increasingly regulating psychologists in their practice and research and with psychology offering insights into human behavior, which will be of value to the criminal- and civil-justice system.
