Recorded Seminar: Race and the Law of Evidence [Professor David Tanovich]


Recorded: 12 November 2021, 72 minutes

How does a person’s race impact the law of evidence? Professor David Tanovich has spent much of his career exploring this question, and believes that many defence lawyers miss the chance to object to evidence that has prejudicial qualities in cases with a defendant from a racial minority or Indigenous background. In this important seminar, he explores the way race impacts the law of evidence and discusses strategies for lawyers to use in objecting to evidence with these components.
