FYS 1157 - Psychology and the Law

Credits: 4.0
Why do people confess to crimes they did not commit?  Why is eye witness testimony sometimes inaccurate? Are there valid techniques for detecting lies?  What factors influence jury decisions beyond the mere evidence of a case?  This course will use psychological theories and experiments to answer these and other questions relevant to human behavior and erroneous decision making within the legal context.
