Law and Psychology

My overarching interest is the intersection between law and psychology. Much of this issue involves thinking about what the appropriate role of psychology and other social sciences is within law. How can psychology improve legal decision-making? How can social science help judges, or parole boards, reach decisions? What are the limits to the appropriate use of social science within legal contexts?
