Psychology 230 PSYCHOLOGY AND LAW Fall 2011 Instructor: Dr. John K. Rempel TA: Keri Raif Office: St. Jerome's University Rm. 2018 Office: St. Jerome's University Rm. 2021 Phone: 884-8111 ext. 28212 Phone: 884-8111 ext. 28256 Email: jrempel@uwaterloo.ca Email: kraif@uwaterloo.ca Office Hours: T 10:30 – 11:30, W 1:00 – 2:00 Office Hours: by appointment Class Meets : Monday, Wednesday 2:30 – 3:50, STJ 1036 Text : Pozzulo, J., Bennell, C. & Forth, A. (2012). Forensic Psychology, 3 rd Edition . Toronto, ON: Pearson Prentice Hall. Course Objectives and Content: This course is a general overview of psychology and law. The goal is to provide you with basic information and a working vocabulary about psychological concepts and principles as they pertain to phenomena encountered in the criminal justice system. This course will look at important research in the area and examine the contemporary methodologies being used in social and forensic psychology. This course is designed to develop the ability to use scientific methods to examine behaviors that occur in a legal context and to lay the foundations for further study in the areas of psychology and law. Requirements and Evaluation: There are two grading options. First, you may base your course grade entirely on your performance on four regular term multiple choice tests ( September 28, October 24, November 14, December 5 ). Each test will be worth 25% of your final grade. In general, the four term tests will be based equally on lecture and textbook material, and will primarily include material covered after the previous test. All tests will make use of scannable computer cards, so please bring a pencil and an eraser. Test results will be posted as soon as they are available. Please check your mark after each test, as we do not generally release marks over the phone or by e-mail, and university policy prohibits final grades from being posted prior to the end of the examination period. The mark received for a test stands – it will not be dropped, re-weighted, etc. because you weren’t feeling well, had a lot on your mind, etc., nor will “extra” assignments be given to students who are dissatisfied with their grades. My goal is to be fair to everyone – please don’t ask for special treatment. However, it is fair for a test to be rescheduled for legitimate medical, compassionate, or religious grounds. Unless circumstances make it impossible to do so, please inform us PRIOR to the scheduled test to arrange a timely makeup, and to provide acceptable documentation to support a medical, compassionate, or religious claim. Make-up exams may differ in format from the original. The University
