Where law and forensic psychology meet
Interdisciplinary lecturing has to be one of the most exciting roles which a lecturer can hold. From the beginnings of Criminology and Forensic / Criminal Psychology and how these disciplines interacted with the law and sentencing in the criminal justice system, there is never a moment whereby one could truly say, I am bored.
My MSc research revolved around how poor nutrition in childhood can contribute to delinquent behaviour which in turn can possibly lead to criminal behaviour in adulthood. This research was exhaustive yet rewarding culminating in a finished dissertation which is available to read upon application.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.
At the moment I am in the early stages of many legal articles which revolve around sentencing of offenders in Ireland, I have also chosen to research the sentencing of offenders and also the leniency or perceived leniency in the sentencing of offenders i.e. gender bias.
I am an advocate of all citizens being educated in the basic legal principles and having some knowledge of the law.
