The John H. Carey School of Law is offering a very exciting new intensive course that will aim to answer questions like:

How is Forensic Psychology used to interview witnesses and suspects? What techniques are used in criminal profiling? How are people wrongfully convicted and how are some cases overturned even years later?

More on the course:

The course will focus on helping students understand the various types of Forensic evidence that can be used in a courtroom to either convict or acquit a defendant. This requires a close examination of a crime scene and how evidence at the crime scene can be collected, preserved and ultimately used in court. Additionally, students will receive information on various aspects of Forensic Psychology such as memory, interviewing witnesses and victims, interrogation of suspects, criminal profiling, and what happens when this information is improperly utilized. Actual case scenarios will be used.
