This paper takes an in-depth look at knowledge and expertise, further demonstrating how they are defined in different contexts. Knowledge is analyzed in terms of our cultural and legal systems. IN particular, it is considered in terms of eyewitness testimony in court proceedings.

From the Paper:

"Knowledge and expertise are intriguing concepts. Knowledge, according to Bertin and Henifin, in our cultural and legal systems constitute two branches: science and law (2002, p. 19). Individuals present knowledge in the courtroom based on apparent expertise: but could this form of information represent inaccurate knowledge? Is data such as scientific opinion and expertise, social science evidence and eyewitness testimony reliable in court proceedings? Do they represent 'knowledge?' The present paper aims to explore these questions."
