                          Creighton University
Guide developed in collaboration with the Teaching, Training, and Careers Committee
               of the American Psychology-Law Society, Division 41
      Guide to Graduate Programs in Forensic and Legal Psychology
This is the 2nd edition of the guide. It lists current graduate programs in forensic and legal
psychology. Programs are listed alphabetically by degree type: doctoral programs (Ph.D. and
Psy.D.), joint programs (Ph.D./J.D., Psy.D./J.D., J.D./M.A., Ph.D./M.L.S.), and masters-level
programs. Each program is described using the same categories (department information,
student applications/admissions, financial information/assistance, research,
internship/practica, employment of department graduates, and any other additional
information) to help prospective students make informed choices about graduate training and
education in psychology and law. All information or lack of information was reported by the
school themselves and was not gleaned by the originators of the guide from publically available
sources.

The 1st edition of this guide was produced by Dr. Garret Berman and students. This edition was
revised by Dr. Matthew Huss, with assistance from Betsy Aderhold and Jenna Boulas, at
Creighton University. In addition, the members of the Teaching, Training, and Careers
Committee gave valuable feedback on an earlier version of the guide. Teaching, Training, and
Careers Committee Members: Garrett Berman, Mark Costanzo (Chair), Matthew Huss, Monica
Miller, Gina Vincent, and Richard Wiener.

Questions regarding the guide itself or any schools that would like to be included in the guide
