SF State worked with AIM Overseas to provide a course in Legal Psychology in Today's America for Australian University students. In this program, students explored the intersections between psychology and the law today, in both the civil and criminal contexts.
SF State Professor Amy Smith shares the highlights of the Legal Psychology in Today's America short-term study program, and why Australian University students interested in the intersection of Law and Psychology should participate in this program.
The primary goal of this highly engaging and thought-provoking course is to look through a psychological lens, at the strengths as well as possible failures or shortcomings of the American legal system and its role in society.
You will delve into various aspects of the legal system in which psychology is (or should be) relevant including:
It is impossible to talk about these issues in America today without acknowledging the social context. Race and ethnicity, class, constructions of gender, discrimination and prejudice, power and privilege, and the media all influence and shape our understanding of psychology, legal systems and the world.
You'll analyze how the incarceration of more than 2 million Americans, influences government, law, economies, family and community structures, and feelings about fairness, equality, race, class and gender.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to join the discussion of such an intensely interesting topic with leading professionals in the field.
