Saul Kassin discusses the remarkable phenomenon of false confessions in criminal investigations—which are far more common than one might expect. His research examines voluntary false confessions, as well as the influence of the interrogation setting, and the authority of the confession in the criminal justice system.

Professor Kassin is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
