A Career in Forensic Psychology

Forensic psychology is the application of scientific knowledge and methods to help answer legal questions arising in criminal, civil, contractual, or other judicial proceedings. In the UK and the USA forensic science upholds a prominent role in the criminal justice system, however in India it is yet to gain prominence. In connection to this, The Department of Psychology is organising an Online Lecture Series: Forensic Psychology: An emerging field. The lecture will be held online on May 20, 2023. Resource person Krupa Nishar will speak on Forensic Psychology: A career with criminals and police.
