Applying Psychological Expertise to Legal Doctrine in Amicus Briefs

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The American Psychological Association recently filed an amicus brief in Panetti v. Quarterman (2007). This brief draws attention to the relationship between psychological expertise and Eighth Amendment doctrine. This presentation will examine some of the central concerns that arise in the process of developing amicus briefs that accurately and effectively apply psychological expertise to legal doctrine. It will consider three distinct approaches to amicus briefs, and it will examine the concerns raised by each in circumstances in which lack of clarity in the applicable legal doctrine renders it difficulty to articulate the relevance of psychological expertise to that doctrine.
