Allison Redlich

Senior Fellow

Allison Redlich is a Professor in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University. She earned in PhD in Psychology at the University of California, Davis and then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford University School of Medicine. In addition to her research interests in mental health courts and guilty pleas, Professor Redlich conducts research on the most effective methods to interview and interrogate suspects, and reduce the likelihood of false confessions. She has received support from the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to examine the contextual and dynamic aspects of interrogation in criminal law enforcement and military settings, and from the Brain and Behavioral Research Foundation to examine the interrogation experiences of offenders with mental illness. She is the co-editor of the 2016 two-volume “International Developments and Practices in Investigative Interviewing and Interrogation” (Vol 1: Victims and Witnesses; Vol 2: Suspected Offenders) and the co-author of a 2010 scientific consensus paper on police-induced confessions. Professor Redlich currently sits on the editorial boards of five academic journals.
