Welcome to

Social Science and Law


Welcome to the Social Science and Law web site.  I developed this site as part of the Social Science and Law course I offer regularly at Cornell Law School. As a social scientist teaching in a law school, I'm interested in exploring how social science is used - and sometimes misused - in legal cases. I hope you find this site useful.
