Courtroom Justice

Scientific American:

In another feature in the issue, a psychologist and a lawyer team up to show how psychological science can improve the accuracy of courtroom decisions, preventing miscarriages of justice in which the wrong person is put behind bars. They present evidence-based solutions for incorrect eyewitness accounts, false confessions, racial bias, prejudicial courtroom procedure and picking innocent individuals in subject line-ups. It’s an important story with widespread implications and clear prescriptions for change (see “Your Brain on Trial,” by Scott O. Lilienfeld and Robert Byron).
