1. SFPJ - French Society of Psychology and Law

  SFPJ

Created in May 2013, the Société Française de Psychologie Juridique (SFPJ) – the French Society of Psychology and Law – is a learned society based in the Paris-Sud University.

 univ paris sud     

 

According to its statutes, its mission is:

-   “To participate in and support research in the field of Psychology and Law ; to contribute to gathering fundamental knowledge applicable to the subject; to reflect on problems stemming from this field; to organise conferences, symposia and other related events;

-    to work towards the development and recognition of this subject in France and abroad;

-  to encourage closer ties between legal specialists (academics, magistrates, lawyers…) and those of sciences of the mind (psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists…);

-  to contribute to a high-quality education of students, researchers and practitioners in psychology and Law;

-  and more generally, to contribute to the development of the subjects of Psychology and Law.”

The SFPJ aims to bring the impetus of a great reflection debate on the links between psychology and law, and more generally, on those linking law and the psyche.

Psychology and Law studies should schematically follow two lines of research: psychology law (studies on the legal handling of questions concerning the conscious mind, the subconscious, intent, will, psychologists’ activities…) and the psychological analysis of law (studies on the psychological impact of law and justice on an individual, of psychology on law, lawyers or magistrates…)

In its research activities, the SFPJ has privileged relations with the CERDI (Centre d’Etudes et de Recherche en Droit de l’Immatériel – Centre for Studies and Research in Immaterial Law) from the Paris I – Panthéon-Sorbonne and Paris-Sud Universities, the CERMES 3 (CNRS – EHESS – Inserm – Paris Descartes University), the CLIPSYD and the Doctoral School ED 139 CLM (Paris Ouest Nanterre la Défense University, the GDR CNRS 3178 « Réseau Droit, Sciences et Techniques », the Laval University in Quebec (Canada) and EAPL (European association of Psychology and Law).

4. The subject matter

 

Initiated at the end of the 19th century, under the impetus of French psychologist Alfred Binet (1857-1911), the study of the relationship between Psychology and Law has mostly been illustrated in the medical and criminal criminal fields. Numerous works have thus been dedicated to the subject in Europe and across the Atlantic (psychology and law, psycholegal studies, legal psychology, forensic psychology…).

“Psychology and Law” (“psychologie juridique”) as it was referred to by Dean Carbonnier, is the ideal means to stimulate a high-level reflection process on the psyche, psychic phenomena, psychological sciences, and the relationship they maintain with law and legal sciences.

The subject matter, as approached by the SFPJ, consists in the systematic study of the relationship between Psychology and Law, in their broadest conceptions.

This innovative field of research requires, in particular, to lead “psycholegal” studies, i.e. studies of objects and/or subjects made using the knowledge of law professionals and specialists of the psyche.

Psychology and Law Studies allows to work in a very concrete manner in an interdisciplinary environment. To acquire a full vision of what is entailed by the psyche and psychic phenomena, it is necessary to defer to the knowledge of psychologists, psychiatrists, and, more generally-speaking, to the entirety of the subjects concerning these objects (neurosciences, philosophy, linguistics, criminology, zetetism…).

Combining the methods, the knowledge, and the abilities of legal professionals and sciences of the mind specialists, research in Psychology and Law should result in a better implementation of law and justice, by allowing a better information on the ins and outs of individual and social psychology.
