  • Laxmi Bakhadyo

Abstract

A field of psychology that deals with all aspects of human behavior as it relates to the law or legal system is forensic psychology. Forensic psychology has played a large role in the criminal justice field over the years. Forensic psychology is a unique, yet crucial blend of both psychology and the criminal justice system. Though application of forensic psychology can make justice system more reliable, effective and efficient, intervention of forensic psychology in Criminal Justice System of Nepal has yet not been acknowledged. There is immense scope in juvenile justice, criminal justice and victim justice system. If proper implication of forensic psychology could be done in investigation, adjudication, prosecution and implementation of decision then criminal justice system can be justice oriented and parties related to criminal justice system could realize justice.
