CRN54  Law, Society & Psychological Science


Mandeep K. Dhami, Yael Granot, Colleen Berryessa

Psychological science has flourished into a hub discipline—scholars in a range of other fields make use of psychological science, including law, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, and philosophy. This inquiry has revealed the need for psychological accounts of human nature that encompass the breadth and diversity of social life, and for research that illuminates psychological accounts of how institutions, organizations, and social contexts affect human experiences (i.e., cognitions, emotions, behaviors, decisions) and how human psychology shapes societal norms, laws, policies, and institutions. The range of both micro- and macro-level psychological theories, from the neuropsychological to the social psychological, and psychological methods used (e.g. experiments, surveys, statistical modeling, and observations) will contribute to this endeavor. The CRN on Law, Society & Psychological Science is a multinational and multidisciplinary community of sociolegal scholars who are empirically and theoretically engaged with psychological science, and who share a common interest in the study of law, legal institutions, legal processes, and social and public policy problems. The CRN was previously the IRC on Law, Society & Psychological Science.
