Sammanfattning (abstract):
The aim of this mixed-method type of study was to evaluate Swedish judges’ perception of the use of the Supreme Court Criteria used for assessing reliability of verbal statements in legal cases. Judges from all over Sweden, in different stages of their career, participated in this study which was divided in two parts. In the first qualitative part, three semi-structured interviews with three different judges were held. The results were analysed thematically and showed skepticism to the use of guidelines as well as a gratefulness to have something to rely on. Situational factors and individual factors were lifted as influential to the usability of criteria. The second part of this study consisted of a web based survey created to acquire quantitative data. Results from the analysis will be presented.
