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



Abstract:

Reasonable doubt has long been the standard of proof in North American criminal cases. In a recent decision, the Supreme Court of Canada held that additional instructions should have been made in a case in which a jury had requested additional instruction on the definition of reasonable doubt (R v. Layton, 2009). This decision raises empirical questions about judicial instructions on reasonable doubt, and the influence of comprehension on jury verdicts. It is noteworthy that social science evidence was not cited in the opinion. Implications of the ruling, and suggestions for enhanced integration of psychology and law, are discussed.
