Abstract

We are very pleased to introduce this special issue of The University of Queensland Law Journal on expert evidence. As many readers will be aware, expert evidence remains a contentious issue both in Australia and abroad. Questions have been raised, for instance, about the reliability of many traditional fields of expert evidence, biases experts may carry with them into court, and the risk of trials transforming into battles of experts. We hope that this special issue contributes to the ongoing discussion.

Keywords: Expert Evidence, Forensic Evidence, Eyewitness Memory, Social Scientific Evidence, Intoxication, Police Training
