Sexual Assault and the Justice Gap: A Question of Attitude
First Edition
Jennifer Temkin, Barbara Krahé    

This book is set against the background of the 'justice gap' in sexual assault cases - the dramatic gap between the number of offences recorded by the police and the number of convictions. It seeks to examine the attitudinal problems which bedevil this area of law and possible strategies for addressing them. Written by a professor of law and a professor of psychology, it reviews evidence from socio-legal and social cognition research and presents new data drawn both from interviews with judges and barristers and from studies with prospective lawyers and members of the public. In the final part, it considers different ways in which rape trials could be improved and suggests steps that could be taken to change public attitudes about sexual assault.


Jennifer Temkin is Professor of Law at the University of Sussex, UK.
Barbara Krah? is Professor of Psychology at the University of Potsdam, Germany.
