Sexual History Evidence and Law Reform

The law on sexual history evidence in sexual offence trials is in urgent need of reform. My policy briefing summarises the main recommendations.

You can also read more detail in my research, where I explain:

  • the reasons why restrictions on sexual history evidence are needed;
  • the evidence we have as to how often sexual history evidence is used in sexual offence trials;
  • why the Court of Appeal judgment in R v Ched Evans is problematic; and
  • detailed recommendations for reform of the law.
