Memory is often the primary evidence in the courtroom, yet unfortunately this evidence may not be fit for purpose. This is because memory is both fallible and malleable; it is possible to forget and also to falsely remember things which never happened.

The legal system has been slow to adapt to scientific findings about memory even though such findings have implications for the use of memory as evidence, not only in the case of eyewitness testimony, but also for how jurors, barristers, and judges weigh evidence. Memory and Miscarriages of Justice provides an authoritative look at the role of memory in law and highlights the common misunderstandings surrounding it while bringing the modern scientific understanding of memory to the forefront.

Drawing on the latest research, this book examines cases where memory has played a role in miscarriages of justice and makes recommendations from the science of memory to support the future of memory evidence in the legal system. Appealing to undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychology and law, memory experts, and legal professionals, this book provides an insightful and global view of the use of memory within the legal system.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Overall, this book offers readers with a fascinating and informative insight into the role of memory across various aspects of law, and the affect memory has on judicial and legal systems. Any reader of this book will gain knowledge on various aspects of memory and its application to various aspects of law, which is particularly beneficial for those who are faced with the effects of memory and the evaluation of memory. As such, this book achieves its aims of informing its intended audience and, in my opinion, at points, goes beyond this; it implies the need for further collaboration between practitioners and academics to develop, evolve and enhance current best practice guidance."- Brandon May, Psychology Teaching Review
