Statistics in the Law

A Practitioner's Guide, Cases, and Materials

Joseph B. Kadane

This book is a practical and professional user's guide for the statistics expert witness-lawyer team.

Introductions and commentary around each set of cases and papers integrate the book into cohesive sections and chapters - a user's reference manual and textbook with some common aims: How to present statistical data to juries and judges by example, statistical graphics, how to distill (or destroy) statistical evidence for juries and judges, how to cross-examine statistics expert witnesses and how to work together as a statistical consultant-lawyer team.

Each party in an expert witness-lawyer team has different responsibilities. The statistician represents data; the lawyer presents such data to judges and juries.
