Forensic Psychology is the intersection between the field of psychology and the justice system. It involves understanding fundamental legal principles, with regard to expert witness testimony and the specific content area of concern (e.g., Competency, Child Custody and Visitation, or Workplace Discrimination), as well as relevant jurisdictional considerations (e.g., in the United States, the definition of insanity in criminal trials differs from state to state) in order to be able to interact appropriately with judges, attorneys, and other legal professionals.
An important aspect of forensic psychology is the ability to provide testimony in court as an expert witness, reformulating psychological findings into the legal language of the courtroom, providing information to legal personnel in a way that can be understood and utilized.
