This book provides an overview of the law into which the science must be integrated. Second, in separate chapters as well as in the topic-specific chapters, it emphasizes the methodological principles and reasoning that underlie various types of scientific evidence. Third, the topic-specific chapters provide a summary of the state of the art of the scientific field under consideration. The first four chapters are devoted to general topics of law or science and serve to introduce issues or subjects that recur throughout. The remaining chapters are devoted to specific kinds of scientific evidence. Each such chapter is divided into two sections. The first section, written in most cases by the editors, discusses the legal relevance of the scientific evidence and outlines the legal framework in which the science is situated. The second section of the topic-specific chapters concerns the state of the science underlying the expert testimony.
