The Admissibility of Expert Evidence: (2) The Rule in R. v. Turner

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter examines the exclusionary rule in R. v. Turner. It shows that the Turner rule works well in keeping bad expert evidence out of courts. It adds that the Turner rule does not encourage careful analysis of expert evidence and that can lead to bad decisions. It argues that, as the amount of expert evidence available to the criminal courts increases, less dependence on traditional objections should be given.

Keywords: expert evidence; criminal courts; traditional objections
