Here a welcome letter from the local organizer, Friedrich Lösel.
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to the International Conference on Psychology & Law in Nuremberg 4-7 August 2015. My colleagues and I are organizing this conference on behalf of the European Association of Psychology and Law to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of EAPL that was launched in Nuremberg in 1990. We hope that you will join us in our celebration of this highly successful scientific society. There will be a lot of scholarly and other activities that attract researchers, practitioners and policy makers who are interested in the interface of Law and Psychology.
We will not only get together European colleagues, but have a joint meeting with the American Psychology & Law Society (AP & LS) and the Australian and New Zealand Association of Psychiatry and Psychology of Law (ANZAPPL). To my knowledge, EAPL is the only European association in psychology that holds such joint conferences with sister organizations from other parts of the world. Although there is not yet an Asian society of P & L we also expect colleagues from there and other regions.
The Division of Psychology & Law of the German Society of Psychology is co-hosting the Nuremberg event. This gives our colleagues from other countries the opportunity to learn about what is going on in P & L in a country, where psychology as an academic discipline has been established in the 19th century by Wilhelm Wundt and where Hugo Münsterberg, William Stern and other famous scholars of forensic psychology originated.

If you are interested in studying forensic psychology, either as a graduate or post-graduate student, this resource will be perfect for you! This article is a guest post written by Joseph Toomey and Angela Yarbrough.
Welcome to the exciting and constantly evolving field of forensic psychology! I know that the process of applying to graduate schools can be very daunting and fraught with difficult and complicated decisions. Is it better to apply to a master’s program? Can I apply directly to doctoral programs without a master’s degree? Which type of program is best for me (e.g., clinical, counseling, social, experimental, etc.)? The list of questions and concerns may seem endless, but know that there are resources available to help you make your decisions. If you have decided that pursuing a career in forensic psychology is the choice for you, hopefully you will find many of the answers you seek here.
Different Types of Forensic Psychology Programs
The two most common divisions of forensic psychology training involve clinical psychology training with a focus in forensic issues (clinical forensic psychology), and social/experimental psychology, also with a focus in forensic issues (social/experimental forensic psychology).
