Alternatively, it may develop as a derivative of on-going research projects by program faculty.
Duration/Time: year-long; ~1hr/week of supervision
Supervisor: TBD

  • End of year presentation to the Law and Psychiatry department
  • AAPL and/or other presentation (poster, paper in progress, panel)
  • Publication (not required but encouraged and supported)

Fellows will read a legal case and write a brief and discussion for the Journal of American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law about it in conjunction with an assigned faculty supervisor.
