Roberts on The Accused's Right to Accurate Procedures

Andrew J. Roberts (Melbourne Law School) has posted The Frailties of Human Memory and the Accused's Right to Accurate Procedures on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The argument presented in this paper is that not only should the state make greater use of scientific research, it is under a moral and legal obligation to do so. The source of this obligation is the right to the most accurate procedures for determining innocence and guilt. I will suggest that this right is implied by the presumption of innocence.
