This chapter reports research that tries to analyse the practices of firms through attendance at interrogations. Before dealing with the dynamics of all the parties involved in the interrogation process — police, advisers and suspects — it reviews first the background of concerns over the interrogation process. Although interrogations have come to assume central importance in the determination of criminal cases, judicial scrutiny has focused on a comparatively narrow range of issues centring on police conduct towards suspects. Interrogations were essentially police-citizen encounters with outsiders barred from access, accounts of which were police constructions. In addition, the police continue to try to improve their own credibility and undermine that of the suspect.
