Thirst for Knowledge: Wrongful convictions

DNA testing proved that legal systems could convict innocent people. But why were individuals wrongfully convicted? And what could be done to prevent those errors? Doctor Bridget Irvine, the research co-ordinator of Innocence Project New Zealand (IPNZ), will address those questions and more about wrongful convictions.

Dr Bridget Irvine is the research co-ordinator of Innocence Project New Zealand (IPNZ). IPNZ, which is based at the University of Otago, investigates possible wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justices. In this talk, Bridget will tell us about how errors in human memory can contribute to miscarriages of justice.
