This Guide is intended to help students in PSYC 2750: Psychology of Law carry out the major term paper project for the course.
Your paper will incorporate what you have learned throughout the course. You will select from a list of three major cases and conduct research to address questions of psychology and law pertaining to your case. Your research will involve the gathering and analysis of evidence you can use to support your arguments and conclusions.
The various sections of this guide are intended to help you at every stage of the project, from topic selection and basic research, through the collection of relevant books, published research and news articles, court opinions, legal case briefs, and web-based materials you can use as sources for analysis.
See the tabs above for starting points and specific resources that can be useful in carrying out this research.
If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to contact me using the information on the right. I am happy to assist you with any aspect of research.
