Introducing students to the practice of forensic psychology, this text presents the roles and responsibilities of forensic psychologists and addresses both the opportunities and temptations inherent in the role. Through this lens, the book explores the ethical responsibilities of the field such as promising clients too much, the possibility of becoming advocates rather than objective scientists and the pitfalls associated with substituting one's values for data.

"I have used (Wrightsman's) Psychology and Law book through each of the revisions...and each time the book gets better." "I think the greatest strength is that the book achieves its main goal...to provide an overview and sampling of the varied roles of forensic psychology."
