Abstract

This chapter considers some issues about 'guilt' and 'innocence' and their proof within criminal justice systems. By elaborating on a number of legal issues it invites psychologists to consider whether they might develop appropriate research studies to take the ideas further. In particular, the chapter invites readers to suspend their insistence that things, laws and procedures, must be as they currently are, just because they are. It invites reconsideration of some key issues.
