Eyewitness testimony: civil and criminal
1 volume. Updated annually.
In the forward, the authors note that “the conversation between working lawyers, investigators and psychologists—between the lab, the street, and the courtroom—is constant”. This was not always the case, much to the detriment of justice. Now, with this active collaboration, eyewitness testimony has been much more thoroughly researched and its strengths and weaknesses better understood. A great deal has been learned about how people experience, see and remember events. This volume will assist the attorney in evaluating eyewitness testimony from the defense and prosecution perspectives. Valid science is described in accessible terms and contrasted with “junk science”. Numerous “real-life” examples make this an interesting and valuable read.
