Legal Definitions and Trial Outcomes Forensic psychology professionals who work with criminal courts take their knowledge of psychology and apply it to the legal arena. This may take many forms including but not limited to assessing for insanity, determining competency, consulting on jury selection, and giving expert testimony. However, many terms such as competency to stand trial and insanity are legal terms with legal definitions and ultimately are decided by the court and not the psychologist. The psychologist’s role is one of expert witness who works within the confines of the legal system.

You also will identify another case in which the definition of insanity impacted the outcome of the trial.
