Welcome to Behavior&Law Corp.

It’s an honor for me to welcome you to this website, especially considering that our institution is characterized by its clear vocation for virtual environments. We welcome you to our virtual home, which from now on is also yours, in the hope that we have been able to faithfully reflect the spirit of our organization, our history, our present and our future.

Our institution, formed by a society and a foundation, has as its main objective to contribute to a fairer and safer society. It is based on three main pillars: scientific research, training and dissemination in Behavioral and Forensic Sciences.

What can we say about the research area? In recent years, 14 working teams have been created on different forensic and human behavioral subjects, encompassed in the Nonverbal Behavior Analysis Group and the Forensic Research Group. These are joined by the recently created Criminal Profiling & Behavioral Analysis International Group, which is a pioneering Think Tank in the world that brings together the main police and judicial behavioral analysis units, undoubtedly a historic milestone.

An important space must also be reserved for our recently inaugurated Institute of Anti-Fraud Behavioral Analysis, in which a clear innovation work is being developed.

In terms of training, we must mention our Master’s Degree programs, with students from more than 10 different countries; our University Improvement Courses, courses lasting one or two months for those who cannot or do not wish to take a Master’s Degree but would like to study our subjects in depth; and our in-company training, the “In House”, through which we transfer to organizations, in a totally practical way, skills that improve their relationship with customers, suppliers and teams and, therefore, have a positive impact on their results.

In terms of scientific dissemination, we have tried to cover the entire communication space, from purely scientific dissemination to that aimed at the general public, from scientific articles to electronic books, as well as congresses and conferences. As a more specific medium we have our scientific journal “Behavior & Law Journal”, as a more general medium, our publishing house, Behavior & Law Ediciones, as online media, our blogs “Club del Lenguaje no Verbal” and “Club de las Ciencias Forenses” and our encyclopedia of lies “Mentirapedia”. Of course, we must not forget the face-to-face dissemination and, therefore, we must refer to our Annual Congresses, which have been developed in the most exceptional locations thanks to the collaboration of the Secretary of State for Security, the National Police and the Civil Guard.

We have had the invaluable academic support of the Chair of Behavior Analysis Udima-Behavior & Law, so masterfully directed by our good friend, Dr. Ángel García Collantes. But in addition, we have had the support of great universities and institutions, and we must clearly mention the Universidad a Distancia de Madrid, the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala, the Universidad de Santiago de Cali, the Secretaría de Estado de Seguridad, the Dirección General de Instituciones Penitenciarias and the Colegios de Médicos de Málaga and Córdoba. We have collaboration agreements with all of them, which provide a fundamental added value to our work. To all of them, thank you very much.

But if there is anyone we should be grateful to, it is our students, those who have placed their trust in us and who make all our work possible. For this reason, I do not want to end without mentioning our alumni group “Alumni B&L”, a meeting place for all of us, for all those who are proud to belong to the B&L family.

Thank you very much for this dream come true!
