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.
