Joelle Moreno

Paul Roberts' and Adrian Zuckerman's ambitious new book, Criminal Evidence, applies the authors' "contexualized approach to evidence and proof" to study the question of how scientific evidence is used in English criminal trials.

The review also examines how the rules of evidence should change in response to the series of recent high profile exonerations that have occurred in each country.
