Review

''''Wrongful convictions are tragedies on multiple levels. By understanding how they occur, however, we can learn how to prevent them--and better identify those that exist. This text is a valuable resource for anyone interested in advancing justice and safety through our systems of criminal justice.'''' --Stephen Saloom, Policy Director, Innocence Project

''''The ice has finally been broken. Acker and Redlich''s Wrongful Conviction is the first casebook dedicated solely to the subject of wrongful convictions. It has set a high standard of excellence that will be a tough act to follow. Not only will this well-organized and easy-to-read casebook appeal to law professors who teach seminars in such subjects as wrongful convictions, criminal procedure, and psychology and the law, but it should also appeal to undergraduate professors who teach students interested in careers in law and criminal justice.'''' --Steven A. Drizin, Clinical Professor of Law and Legal Director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions, Northwestern University School of Law

''''This book sets out an important and accessible track of study. Starting with the question of what is a wrongful conviction, the authors also explain the basic features of the criminal process and evidence law, and introduce contributions from the social sciences to help our understanding of sources of error. That journey will engage all interested in understanding what can cause wrongful convictions and what can improve the quality of criminal justice.'''' --Brandon L. Garrett, Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law
