Ten Things the Law and Others Should Know about Human Memory

(p.359) 14 Ten Things the Law and Others Should Know about Human Memory
Memory and Law

Martin A. Conway

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes my experiences a memory expert witness and how these led to a major report by the British Psychological Society on memory and the law. The aim of this report was to provide a set of guidelines about human memory that were agreed by a broad range of memory researchers and supported by scientific findings. The intention was to provide an authoritative source that could be used by non-experts and which would also stop the selective use of findings that so undermines expert testimony.

Keywords:   expert witness, memory guidelines, memory and the law, autobiographical memory, scientific evidence
