Johnston will address the psychology that drives someone to kill again and again, why some serial killers get away with it for so long, and how they get caught.

“Serial killers are among the most heinous criminals, but they also hold a certain fascination for us,” Pritikin said. “Dr. Johnston’s expertise will provide insights into a realm in which few people have knowledge beyond what they see in movies or on the news.”

California-licensed attorneys can receive one general Minimum Continuing Legal Education credit for attending this webinar.

Registration for this event is free and required. To register, click here. After the live event, the webinar will be available for viewing on the law school’s YouTube page.
