From July to December 2016 the Isaac Newton Institute Programme on Probability and Statistics in Forensic Science in Cambridge hosted many of the world's leading figures from the law, statistics and forensics with a mixture of academics (including mathematicians and legal scholar), forensic practitioners, and practicing lawyers (including judges and eminent QCs). Videos of many of the seminars and presentation from the Programme can be seen here.
A key output of the Programme has now been published. It is a very simple set of twelve guiding principles and recommendations for dealing with quantitative evidence in criminal law for the use of statisticians, forensic scientists and legal professionals. The layout consists of one principle per page as shown below.
