The Pursuit of Justice is a realistic yet hopeful analysis of how the law works in practice rather than in theory.

The multi-chapter discussion recognizes that decision makers in the law - judges, lawyers, juries, police, forensic experts and more - respond systematically to the incentive structures with which they are confronted. In turn, incentives are a function of economic and institutional design.

While these chapters shed light on how perverse incentives result in adverse outcomes, each chapter also suggests institutional reforms that would create better incentives within the legal system.
