Much has changed in the five years since the third edition was published. Jones v Kaney [2011] UKSC 13; [2011] 2 A.C. 398, the Supreme Court struck away expert protection from litigation by the party directing them. As a result, Chapter 14 has been completely rewritten. The Law Commission issued its report "Expert Evidence in Criminal Proceedings in England and Wales" (No. 325) the same year. Its main proposal was that expert opinion evidence be put on a statutory basis in criminal courts, and that it should be accepted "only if it is sufficiently trustworthy to be permitted." This was meant to imply that expert opinion must be "soundly established," and that "the strength of the view is justifiable in light of the grounds on which it is founded." When evaluating the trustworthiness of expert opinion evidence, the Law Commission advised that courts use a legislative checklist.
