Forensic Psychology

Forensic psychology research is at the interface between psychology and the law. The forensic psychology research conducted by academic staff in the School of Psychology informs decision making around a diverse and range of social, clinical and legal issues.

Forensic psychologists at UNSW provide postgraduate training to develop the field through the Master of Psychology (Forensic) program and offer practical clinical experience through the Wentworth Forensic Clinic.

Our academics are widely published and have been very successful in securing grant funding and developing productive industry partnerships. The forensic psychology research group at the School of Psychology is expanding rapidly in both size and reputation.
