Forensic Science Evidence: Best Practices for Law

Jane Goodman-Delahunty, Mandeep Dhami, Simon Walsh, Glenn Langenberg

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Improved usage of forensic science evidence by legal practitioners is essential to reduce miscarriages of justice. This book presents critical insights into contemporary issues of forensic proof from a broad perspective. Using DNA and fingerprint evidence, the authors compare and contrast the science of forensics and how it is communicated to judges, juries, and counsel. With authors from Australia, the UK, and the U.S., the book also addresses how these different countries address science in the courtroom. This resource is ideal for all those who work in forensic capacities, including those scientists who increasingly are called to testify abroad.
