Abstract

The Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and the Lord President of Scotland have worked together with the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh to create a series of judicial primers to assist the judiciary with better understanding of scientific evidence in the courtroom. They were written by leading scientists and members of the judiciary, and peer reviewed by practitioners, scientists and judges. The aim of the primers is to present clear, scientifically accurate information and to address the limitations and challenges associated with applying scientific evidence in a courtroom. The Understanding Forensic Analysis comic series led by the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee reinterprets the primers in order to visualise these issues and challenges for a wider audience.

Understanding Forensic Gait Analysis is an examination of the process of visual comparisons made in forensic gait analysis, and considers the new methods that are being developed but still need to be scientifically proven.
