This book offers a full analysis of miscarriages of justice in the United Kingdom. It begins with a definition—what a miscarriage of justice actually is—then examines the dimensions, forms, scale, and effect of miscarriages of justice, and explores key cases and their causes. Sam Poyser examines the formal routes for remedying miscarriages of justice, such as the Court of Appeal and the Criminal Cases Review Commission, arguing that their record of recognizing miscarriages is far from perfect, to say nothing of their record of righting them. Designed as a textbook, Miscarriages of Justice is clear and accessible, and it offers questions for reflection following each chapter.
