Practitioner guides

The guides look at communicating and interpreting statistical evidence in the administration of criminal justice. They are intended to assist judges, lawyers, forensic scientists and other expert witnesses in coping with the demands of modern criminal litigation.

Responsibility for the content of the guides rests with the authors, a multidisciplinary team comprising a statistician (Colin Aitken), an academic lawyer (Paul Roberts), and two forensic scientists (Graham Jackson and Roberto Puch-Solis). Their colleagues on our Statistics and the Law Working Group, other advisers and commentators should not be assumed to endorse all, or any particular part, of the text.

The guides are endorsed by the Royal Statistical Society and were produced in association with us. This work was supported financially by the Nuffield Foundation.
