Summary "Analyzes the problem of miscarriages of justice in the United Kingdom by one of the UK’s leading authorities on the subject. Naughton argues that the legal process causes miscarriages of justice and places roadblocks to the overturning of convictions. Naughton interprets error as a norm built into the legal system. He defines the term ’miscarriage of justice’ to show that it applies to thousands of cases per year in the UK. Naughton also explores the impact of miscarriages of justice on a range of victims - direct and indirect - and their wider effect on society as a whole. Previous attempts to reform the system to prevent miscarriages of justice and their consequences have proved unsuccessful and here, Naughton provides an explanation of why they have failed and provides a new perspective on the ways to prevent mistakes occuring.
