Last Updated: July 5, 2018




Rakel Larson is a visiting assistant professor teaching Psychology and Law in the USC Gould School of Law. She received her MS in Child Development from the University of California, Davis and her PhD in Psychology from the University of California, Riverside. Her research examines factors that influence witness participation in the criminal justice process (e.g., perceptions of procedural justice), eyewitness memory, and forensic interview techniques for eliciting reliable and high quality memory reports from both children and adults. The work addresses issues affecting historically underrepresented groups, such as ethnic minorities, individuals with histories of trauma (e.g., child maltreatment), and those from economically disadvantaged environments. The research has implications for theory, public policy, and practice with victims and witnesses of crime.

Re: Nomi Stolzenberg

Nomi Stolzenberg was quoted in an article about whether or not religious judges can keep their faith separate from their rulings. Stolzenberg said, “[Amy Barrett] is being selected to fulfill a half century campaign to take back the courts, to return religion to the public square, to dismantle a style of secularist constitutional interpretation that religious conservatives find objectionable."
