Interdisciplinary Trends in Evidence Scholarship


Abstract In recent decades, evidence scholarship published in leading law reviews has become markedly interdisciplinary, while treatises and texts continue to fill the need for doctrinal analysis. The authors describe this trend and set forth its recent history. They review and critique scholarship that applies concepts and insights from psychology, probability theory, philosophy, feminism, and economics to the law of evidence. They also comment on the pitfalls, benefits and prospects of interdisciplinary evidence scholarship
