The Law & Psychiatry Service (LPS) is a forensic mental health consulting, training, and research practice within the MGH Department of Psychiatry and Harvard Medical School.
Our expertise includes criminal matters like competency to stand trial and criminal responsibility and civil matters such as emotional distress damages, disability, malpractice, workplace violence, sexual harassment, and testamentary capacity. We also provide consultation on workplace mental health issues, including assessments of fitness for duty, reasonable accommodations, and suitability for job functions.
Established in 1989, the LPS is dedicated to the memory of Thomas P. Hackett, M.D., the late Eben S. Draper Professor of Psychiatry, who inspired its formation.
