Description: Legal psychologists often serve as expert witnesses to assist triers of fact when determining the accuracy of eyewitness evidence. Although expert testimony on topics such as investigative interviewing and interrogations, police lineups, and eyewitness evidence remains highly relevant in legal cases, these experts (and the research they rely upon) remain underutilized by state courts. This symposium will summarize recent findings in the above areas and address courts’ (and judges’) reluctance to further integrate this research and its experts into the courtroom. This symposium will also provide information and recommendations regarding how attorneys can use research on eyewitness evidence to better represent their clients, and how this research can inform and improve the way the OH legal system deals with eyewitness evidence.
