should be fully, fairly, accurately and transparently reported in

accordance with international standards and with recognition

of its limitations. First and foremost, the duty of the

expert is to the court.

Forensic Science and the Law

A guide for Police, Lawyers and Expert Witnesses explains different aspects of forensic science in a non-technical way to give the non-scientist the tools and starting point to understand the most common forensic science issues raised during the investigation and litigation stages of criminal and traffic proceedings.

Peter Williams QC, foreword:

This veracious text book is in my opinion the most erudite and comprehensive work of its kind ever to be published in New Zealand. It provides essential reading not only for lawyers and judges but also for a whole raft of specialised people needing forensic guidance … I have practiced as an advocate in the criminal courts for over 50 years and my regret is that this valuable text book was not earlier available.
