APA’s 125th Annual Convention

Are you ready to present your exciting results from interesting work in the area of psychology and the law? Consider submitting programming for the 125th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association to be held Aug 3 – 6, 2017 in Washington, D.C.!

The American Psychology – Law Society (APA Division 41) invites presentations from any area that involves the intersection between psychology and the law (e.g., practice, teaching, research, policy, law, community outreach). We will accept proposals in the following formats: symposia, individual papers, skill-building sessions, conversation hours, and posters.

All topics will be considered and we especially encourage proposals that translate research findings into clinical applications, practical, and/or policy implications. 

Please note that dual submissions are not being accepted at this time. A dual submission is one in which the same research is presented at more than one conference. You cannot submit a proposal that has already been submitted to another conference.

You are welcome to submit more than one proposal to this conference.

Proposals must be submitted through the APA convention website by December 1, 2017 (5pm EST): http://www.apa.org/convention/proposals.aspx. If directly clicking on the link does not work, you can copy and paste the link directly into your web browser.

More information about this convention, proposal format, and requirements can be found at: http://www.apa.org/convention/convention-proposals.pdf
