Law, Probability and Risk


The journal publishes papers that deal with topics on the interface of law and probabilistic reasoning. These are interpreted broadly to include aspects relevant to the interpretation of scientific evidence, the assessment of uncertainty and the assessment of risk. The readership is primarily academic lawyers, mathematicians, statisticians and social scientists with interests in quantitative reasoning.

Non-evidence law topics include environmental issues, mass torts, causation, risk assessment, medical and pharmaceutical litigation involving the evaluation of epidemiological and bio-statistical evidence according to legal criteria.

The primary objective of the journal is to cover issues in law, which have a scientific element, with an emphasis on statistical and probabilistic issues and the assessment of risk.
