The Science of Memory and Admissibility of Expert Memory Evidence

On the 16th May Eleanor Laws QC and Dr Julia Shaw presented a seminar exploring memories as evidence in legal proceedings.

Dr Shaw discussed the science behind false memories, self-deception and how our memory system really works, with consideration given to how law enforcement agencies can use tactics that may lead people to recall crimes that never occurred.

Eleanor Laws QC provided an update on the admissibility of Expert Memory Evidence as it applies to our legal system. You can see Ms Laws’ slides here.
