Abstract Personality disorders have a complex relationship with the law that in many ways reflects their complexity within the clinical and research communities. This paper addresses expert testimony about personality disorders, outlines how personality disorders are assessed in forensic cases, and describes how personality disorders are viewed in different legal contexts. Reasons are identified why personality disorders are not generally accepted as significant mental illness within the legal system, including high incidence of personality dysfunction in criminal populations, frequent comorbidity of personality disorders making it difficult to determine direct causation, and difficulty determining where on a continuum personality traits should be defined as illness or not. In summary, the legal system, to a significant degree, mirrors the clinical conception of personality disorders as not severe mental diseases or defects, not likely to change, and most often, under volitional control. Introduction The role of personality disorders within the legal arena has been of interest to clinicians since the early days of psychiatry when physicians were called to court in an effort to explain criminal behaviors. Many do so regularly in the contexts of involuntary commitment or assessing competency to make treatment decisions, or are asked by attorneys or the courts to share their specific content-related expertise. It is very common for questions to arise in these settings as to what significance, if any, should be given to the presence of personality disorders. Mental illnesses, including personality disorders, can potentially modify applications of the law in criminal and civil contexts. Classification and specific definitions of mental disorders can have a major impact on how and when they serve as modifiers. Clinicians entering the forensic arena, however, for the most part, do not immerse themselves in thinking about the current social definition or understanding of mental illness. Because of their training and experience, clinicians most often resort to explaining mental illness through the lens of the most widely accepted classification system, which for the last 40 years, at least in the United States, has been the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM. To date, the DSM 6 has utilized a categorical approach to personality disorder diagnoses, in that an individual must meet specific criteria in order to be categorized as having a personality disorder. Earlier in the preparation of DSM-5 8 it appeared that one of the most significant changes on the horizon of evolving classification of mental illness would be a move to a dimensional rather than a categorical approach. Nonetheless, documentation of that debate and the literature recounting the rationale for change remain available to attorneys and courts, who could use it to challenge the science behind existing conceptualization of personality disorders in legal proceedings.

Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse? Did you check for blood pressure? Did you check for breathing?
