We are pleased to announce that the 20th conference of the Legal Psychology Division in the German Psychological Society on the topic "Towards solid science and evidence-based application" will take place at the Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz in September 2023. We hope to see many of you again and we are already looking forward to exciting talks and lively discussions. 

In addition to your contributions, highlights of the conference will be the top-class keynote talks by Dr. Itiel Dror, Prof. Dr. Henry Otgaar, and Prof. Dr. Ethel Quayle as well as the lecture for the general public by Prof. Dr. Kristina Suchotzki (in German language).

We would like to point out that the conference will take place in presence and there will be no possibility for digital participation. In addition, we would like to mention our buddy program, which brings together conference newcomers (mentees) with experienced conference participants (mentors) to help mentees find their way around the conference, meet people, and expand their network.

In the upcoming months, you will find all the relevant information about the conference on this website. If you have any questions, please contact the organizing team via our contact address:

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Prof. Dr. Roland Imhoff
Jun.-Prof. Dr. Verena Oberlader
