Supervisor: TBD
Outcome(s):

  • 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)

Legal Digest

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.
