About Professor David Hamer

I am fascinated by the inherent uncertainty in the facts that the courts must ascertain at trial, how courts seek to overcome this uncertainty, and how the factual accuracy aspiration is balanced against considerations of fairness and efficiency.

David Hamer publishes interdisciplinary research on evidence law, theories of inference and causation in Australia and overseas.

David Hamer's primary research interest is in the law of evidence. He takes an interdisciplinary approach,  interrogating the law - and the proof process more broadly - using tools drawn from probability theory, narrative theory and psychology. His interest in evidence law often flows over into areas of substantive law and broader issues, in particular law's continuing struggle with the notion of causation, criminal justice, and the causes of and solutions to wrongful convictions.
