This chapter provides a personal narrative of the author’s role in the development of psychology and law as recognized subfield in psychology. The chapter considers his integrative model for combining the fields, including how his own work demonstrated the various types of possible interactions: psychological science studying law and law-related topics; psychologists aiding in the law’s administration; law affecting psychology science and practice; and using legal insights to improve psychology and create integrated psycholegal interventions. The chapter concludes by considering three approaches the author employed to institutionalize and nurture the field, including training programs, publication outlets, and convincing the psychological and legal communities of the importance of psychology and law as a newly emerging field of scholarship and practice.
