Discovery - Conclusion

Discovery in criminal case will never rival the extensive system in civil litigation. However, its progress in the last three decades of the twentieth century was considerable. While some expansion of discovery can be expected, its rough outer limits have likely been defined. The remaining goal of reformers is to achieve in most jurisdictions a statutory entitlement to what is often called "open file discovery" from the prosecution, which will almost certainly entail further defense disclosures.
