Since its inception, NYCLA has been at the forefront of most legal debates in the country. We have provided legal education for more than 40 years.
Proceeding from the perspective of the problem of wrongful convictions, the largest portion of which are attributable to misidentifications, participants will discuss recent developments in the law respecting eyewitness identification evidence, including the admissibility of testimony of experts and eyewitnesses, and an assessment of proposed reforms in the field. Topic to be addressed include overview of legal history and update on the current law and practice on eyewitness identification expert testimony, including anecdotal information; development of the social science research in the area; the role of the judge as gatekeeper of both expert and eyewitness testimony; emerging issues in eyewitness identification cases
