In some areas of the law, psychiatrists have become as much a part of the legal landscape as lawyers and litigants. The courts' increasing reliance on expert psychiatric testimony raises questions in both the medical and legal communities.

In this work, the author explains and examines the role of psychiatry in the courtroom. Drawing on actual depositions, he discusses the problems and legal principles that help distinguish good testimony from bad.

Also covered are a wide variety of psychiatric and legal issues, from worker's compensation and murder to child abuse and repressed memory to malpractice and sexual harassment (628 pgs).
