About the book:

When does social science research reach the legal system? What determines whether and how it is used when it gets there? To answer these questions, REFORMING THE LAW assesses the impact of research on children's competence in decision making and also looks more generally at the effectiveness of social scientists in reaching legal decision makers. The authors give practical guidance to social scientists who wish to influence the legal system. They also provide new insights into the sociology of the law and the social sciences. Drawn from both academia and policy centers, the authors apply their backgrounds in law, psychology, and policy analysis for a rich interdisciplinary discussion of the process of legal policy making.

A product of a study group sponsored by the Society for Research in Child Development, REFORMING THE LAW has special significance for child development researchers, legal policy makers, and practitioners. Readers interested in the development of child legal policy, social scientists who seek to inform the law, and anyone wishing to understand the interaction between law and social science will also find this volume an invaluable resource.
