“A remarkable book....This book is a gem. It is clearly written and coherent and provides a fascinating perspective on how case law informs clinical forensic practice....As a textbook, it will deepen and enrich the understanding of major substantive issues in the law that may be covered by other books that go less into depth....It is also very valuable as a reference, even for advanced practitioners in the field.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)

“The book gives a good overview of how court procedures work and how courts reason....Because of its breadth of coverage, the book would be a good text for students in the social and behavioral sciences and mental health professional training. It would also be a good reference for clinics and social agencies.”

Families in Society (on the first edition)

“Enjoyable....The authors write about the legal concepts in an easy-to-understand and friendly fashion. The stories behind the legal cases provide vivid backdrops for the complex legal concepts presented....I would recommend this book to clinicians interested in legal concepts and precedents, as well as to those interested in the study of law and mental health issues.”

Psychiatric Services (on the first edition)

“A thorough and immensely readable primer on the core issues facing the forensic practitioner....[The book] underscores many of the subtler issues in forensics, while bringing a human face to the field.”
