This introductory chapter presents the main focus of the book, which is the use of expert evidence in the criminal process. It explains that expert evidence presents a number of challenges to the legal system and that what links them, perhaps, is the need to defer to, yet exert a degree of control over, the experts employed in it. It presents brief details of what the next chapters are all about.
