Our interest in forensic evidence, and in the use of DNA within criminal trials in particular, arises out of our recent responsibility to review the Crimes (Forensic Procedures) Act 2000 in New South Wales. This review engaged various methodologies to enable an understanding of forensic evidence procedures, from investigation through to courtroom practice. Crucially, the review explored the significance of DNA evidence within criminal trials in order to speculate on ways in which such evidence may be received by the trial 'fact-finders' in an appropriate and enlightening manner.
