Abstract

This chapter looks at profiling as expert evidence. While not allowed in many jurisdictions, others have been more receptive to this type of expert testimony. As a result, the rules of expert evidence in Australia and elsewhere are discussed, along with those areas in which profiling may be able to assist in the legal process. This chapter will also discuss in some detail relevant cases where profiling evidence has been offered, including the outcome of the cases where known.
