Watson, Andrew S., 1920-1998

Andrew S. Watson, M.D., was a pioneer in bringing together the fields of psychiatry and law, helping to establish an interdisciplinary approach in the discipline. Watson brought his training as a psychiatrist to bear in legal cases, using psychiatry to explain both criminal behavior and the legal negotiation process. He was also interested in the lawyer-client relationship and was a critic of traditional law school training, challenging the profession to think differently about educational methods.

Watson's published work includes Psychiatry for Lawyers, The Lawyer in the Interviewing and Counseling Process, chapters in books, and numerous articles in scholarly journals.
