Hofstra Law Review


The article discusses the efforts to mitigate what the author refers to as the negative effects that personal belief and bias have on America's criminal justice system as of 2015, and it mentions justice, fairness, and the pre-trial beliefs that prosecutors and defense attorneys have regarding an accused person's guilt or innocence. Probable cause and wrongful convictions are examined, along with the goal of revealing the truth in a judicial proceeding. U.S. legal ethics are also assessed.
