Although economic theory provides the framework of analysis in this article, author draws heavily on an empirical literature on trials and evidence that is largely psychological in orientation, as well as on Bayes theorem, other aspects of decision theory, and statistical inference. The approach is therefore eclectic rather than narrowly economic, although it slights epistemological and other philosophical perspectives on the trial process, which seem to me to have only a very limited utility. The articles explanatory findings and reformist suggestions are summarized in the Conclusiona glance at which will show that, despite the still widespread belief that economic analysis of law has an inherent tendency toward politically conservative reforms, this is clearly not true with regard to the law of evidence.
