Students and Early Career
The EAPL hopes to call attention to high-quality student research (undergraduate, masters, and doctoral) and facilitate student involvement in the field. In line with this, the EAPL will host a number of events intended for student and early career members at the 2014 conference. There are also a number of student awards available for this conference, including three “best paper” awards for which students need to enter their submissions before the conference (each worth 150 euro), and three poster awards that will be determined during the conference (worth 200, 150, and 100 euro respectively). Undergraduate, masters, and PhD level members are eligible for this funding. For more information on student involvement at the 2014 conference visit www.eaplstudent.com.

About the European Association of Psychology and Law
The European Association of psychology and law (EAPL) has three broad aims;
- the promotion of research,
- the promotion of teaching, and
- the promotion of the interchange concerning psychology and law.
The Association is broad; it embraces those interested in the interface between psychology and law in all its diverse aspects - researchers and practitioners. If we think of offending from a developmental perspective, members of the association are concerned with offenders - and their victims - from the cradle to the grave. Psychology is relevant to the offending pathway, from early risk factors and early intervention approaches, to the process of detection and identification after a crime is committed, to the collection of evidence and its presentation in court. Finally, psychology is relevant after conviction in terms of the management, treatment and supervision of those convicted, and indeed, the treatment of their victims. This brings diversity. Diversity is one of the fascinations of the field; diversity is one of the strengths of the Association. Coming together within Europe we have been able to consider, appreciate and learn from the diversity of approaches that apply across this continent from Norway in the North to Cyprus in the South, from Ireland in the West to Russia in the East. We have been able to celebrate both similarities and differences in thinking and practice. Importantly, the association is not merely European; we have long-standing, committed and dedicated members from Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia. So welcome to our website. Also, I hope I can welcome you to one of our annual meetings. Over the next few years we have meetings planned in England and St Petersburg.
In this website, you will find information about our association - what it does and for whom - and information about our annual meetings. These meetings are very important in the life of EAPL, a chance for a great many of our members to get together and share their ideas and experience, research findings and plans with colleagues from all over Europe - and the world - who have very similar interests. In this website, you will also find information about our journal - Psychology, Crime and Law - which we issue eight times each year, both what its aims are and how to prepare and submit your manuscripts. We hope very much that you will think seriously about publishing your research in Psychology, Crime and Law. Here, you will also find information about our very active EAPL student section. Please click on the Students tab above to find out more and to get involved.
The last EAPL conference took place in Nicosia in Cyprus between 10-13th April 2012. The next EAPL conference will take place in Coventry in England between the 2nd-6th of September. Visit the conferences tab for more information on this conference.
We trust you will find this website informative. We hope too that you will enjoy being a member of EAPL and benefit from the knowledge and experience of a like-minded community of practitioners and academics.
