Overview

Intended to help make material on criminal cases and law relevant and personal for students, THE MEASURE OF LEGAL ATTITUDES is a workbook-style supplement that features 31 scales that measure attitudes relevant to the legal system. Gathered from active researchers in the field, each chapter covers a different scale or topic, and includes scale items and scoring instructions. Each scale is consistently organized to include the following: the title of the scale, author of the scale, author contact info, purpose of the scale, relevant publications list pertaining to the scale, scale items and directions, a scoring key, and a summary of contents. Among the high interest topics covered by this text: legal attitudes of prospective jurors, attitudes about medical malpractice, attitudes towards physician-assisted suicide, acceptance of rape myths, attitudes toward the death penalty, knowledge of eyewitness testimony, attitudes about spouse abuse and battered women, and political correctness.

Meet the Author

Lawrence S. Wrightsman (Ph.D., University of Minnesota, 1959) was professor of psychology at the University of Kansas, Lawrence. Wrightsman authored or edited ten other books relevant to the legal system, including Psychology and the Legal System (4th edition, coauthored with Michael T. Nietzel and William H. Fortune), The American Jury on Trial (coauthored with Saul M. Kassin), and Judicial Decision Making: Is Psychology Relevant? He was invited to contribute the entry on the law and psychology for the recently published Encyclopedia of Psychology, sponsored by the American Psychological Association and published by Oxford University Press. His research topics included jury selection procedures, reactions to police interrogations, and the impact of judicial instructions. He also served as a trial consultant and testified as an expert witness. Wrightsman is a former president of both the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues and the Society of Personality and Social Psychology. In 1998 he was the recipient of a Distinguished Career Award from the American Psychology-Law Society. This award has been made on only six occasions in the 30-year history of the organization; the preceding awardee was U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun.
