He has published numerous peer reviewed articles and book chapters on memory, as well as authored and edited a number of books. Dr Lauren M. Knott is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at City, University of London, UK.

Prof Martin Conway is the Head of Psychology at City, University of London, UK.

"Overall, this book offers readers with a fascinating and informative insight into the role of memory across various aspects of law, and the affect memory has on judicial and legal systems. Any reader of this book will gain knowledge on various aspects of memory and its application to various aspects of law, which is particularly beneficial for those who are faced with the effects of memory and the evaluation of memory. As such, this book achieves its aims of informing its intended audience and, in my opinion, at points, goes beyond this; it implies the need for further collaboration between practitioners and academics to develop, evolve and enhance current best practice guidance."- Brandon May, Psychology Teaching Review
