As a follow-up, I would point out some excellent psychology-and-law resources (sorry; now that I teach it at a law school, it's "law-and-psychology" - sort of emphasizes the point, doesn't it).
First is the American Psychology/Law Society, founded in the late 1960's; with annual conferences highlighting the most current and topical research in legal psychology. The website has links to various newsletters of the Society, which include conference programs in order to see who is doing what sort of empirical research.
Second is the Society-sponsored, peer-reviewed journal, Law and Human Behavior, published by Springer. Publishing top-quality empirical research, LHB is consistently one of the most highly-cited non-law-review journals. The topic areas are often limited to the "traditional" psych-and-law topics I've mentioned before, though - forensics, eyewitness, juries - and I am sure that its editors would welcome a broad range of submission topics of the sort that ELS people here investigate.
Both APLS and LHB are good resources for finding primary research and empirical, interdisciplinary collaborators (JD/PhD's are not uncommon in APLS) - IMHO, both can help as the ELS field continues to develop.
