The membership will consist of practising psychologists involved in or contributing to complex expert witness work.

Applicants should have experience and expertise of the legal context in the court system and other judicial processes. The membership of the group will reflect a breadth of expertise in this area.

Applications from members working in the Devolved Nations are also welcomed.

Please note, the society welcomes and encourages applications from people of all backgrounds particularly applications from people with a disability, BAME and LGBT+ who are currently under-represented across the Society.
