Memory on Trial: Evaluating Eyewitness Identification Evidence In The 21st Century
Eyewitness identification can have an enormous impact on the outcome of a trial. But how trustworthy is such testimony? And, if inaccurate, could it result in a miscarriage of justice? How should the courts proceed?
To explore these important issues, The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) is pleased to present this lecture by the Honorable Stuart Rabner, Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, titled “Memory on Trial: Evaluating Eyewitness Identification Evidence in the 21st Century.” The moderator is the Honorable Shirley Werner Kornreich, Justice, Supreme Court, New York County, Commercial Division. This program—a Bernard G. Segal Memorial Lecture in Law and Ethics at JTS—is cosponsored by the Louis Finkelstein Institute for Religious and Social Studies of JTS, and cohosted by Columbia Law School.
