Professor Daniel Reisberg tackles these questions by drawing on the available science and his personal experience training attorneys.

Later chapters offer practical solutions for navigating situations involving eyewitness identifications, remembered conversations, evidence obtained from interviews with children, confession evidence, and the risks of false confession.
