Lay Perceptions of Forensic Science Evidence and Errors

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In March 2009, the National Academy of Sciences published their long-awaited report on forensic science in the American court system. The report pointed out many errors that can be made in the processing and use of science in the courts, with great detail. One important question, however, was not asked: What do American juries think about forensic science evidence? Furthermore, how aware of errors are they? This study seeks answers to these questions. A multi-site design has been prepared for use to probe jurors’ questions relating to the perceived usefulness and potential problems of multiple commonly-used types of forensic science evidence.
