The increasing use of document reviews in forensic psychology requires that we consider the specific issues that may arise in presenting these in a legal forum, as well as the theoretical and ethical underpinnings that inform such tasks. Recent changes in ethical codes for psychologists seem to suggest a wider scope for document reviews even up to the point of diagnostic for mulations. We suggest some ways to offer such opinions in a balanced, de fensible and objective manner.
