FOSW01 - The nature of questions arising in court that can be addressed via probability and statistical methods

Fact finding and evidence in criminal procedure has increasingly gained attention from other, non-legal disciplines, such as statistics, legal psychology and legal epistemology. Those disciplines provide useful insights as to how to arrive at a decision on the facts and possible pitfalls. However, those insights don’t always find their way into legal practice. Judicial concepts and doctrine don’t seem to match with those insights. In this presentation these problems are addressed from a juridical (continental) point of view. Where do the (systemic) weaknesses lie in the judicial system and in doctrine when it comes to the use of evidence and what are potential hindrances in the use of probabilistic reasoning and narratives in criminal procedure?
