Kathryn Campbell publishes a new book on miscarriages of justice


Kathryn Campbell (Associate Professor) published a new book titled Miscarriages of Justice in Canada: Causes, Responses, Remedies at University of Toronto Press (UTP). According to UTP, the book "offers an extensive overview of wrongful convictions, bringing together current sociological, criminological, and legal research, as well as current case-law examples. For the first time, information on all known and suspected cases of wrongful conviction in Canada is included and interspersed with discussions of how wrongful convictions happen, how existing remedies to rectify them are inadequate, and how those who have been victimized by these errors are rarely compensated." In her latest book, "Campbell reveals that the causes of wrongful convictions are, in fact, avoidable, and that those in the criminal justice system must exercise greater vigilance and openness to the possibility of error if the problem of wrongful conviction is to be resolved."
