Forensic psychology, as a sub-discipline of psychology, deals with the application of psychological theories, methods and findings to the legal system. It includes forensic (judicial) psychology and criminal psychology (explanation of crime, prognosis, prevention, etc.), but also subject areas that cannot be assigned to any function “serving” the law. These are, for example, the analysis of the legal use of psychological concepts such as “will” or “intent” or the psychology of judicial judgment.
At the University of Bonn, the subject of forensic psychology can be studied as part of the advanced master’s course with different focuses. The advanced master’s course "Legal Psychology with a focus on psychology in criminal and civil proceedings" qualifies graduated psychologists with relevant professional experience for judicial review or expert work .
