Dr. Fradella's area of specialization is law and social control. Within that broad field, he studies the intersection of law with the social and forensic sciences, most frequently with an emphasis in forensic psychology and psychiatry. This includes research and teaching on the historical development of criminal and constitutional law (substantively, procedurally, and evidentially); the dynamics of legal decision making (including the roles of politics, discretion, morality, and popular culture); and the nature, sources, and consequences of variations in legal institutions or processes (including law and social change).
