Larry J. Siegel

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx, New York. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York (CCNY) in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the influence contemporary culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? Dr. Siegal applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened School of Criminal Justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for 9 years. He also held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, before joining the faculty at the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell (UML). He is now professor emeritus at UML. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the areas of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, corrections, criminal justice, courts, private security and criminal procedure. He is a court-certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Dr. Siegel and his wife, Therese J. Libby, now reside in Naples, Florida.
