Abstract

In legal proceedings, determination of truth is an essential component of true justice. Determining truth requires the careful examination of evidence. However, when the evidence is eyewitness testimony of a child, complex psycho-legal issues are raised: issues of children’s comprehension, competence, accuracy, and emotional resilience, and issues of the legal system’s ability to adapt itself to the needs of children so that truth can be ascertained.
