The experiment which this paper will explore is the one of Chile’s reform experiment in criminal law, in which they transformed their criminal law system from inquisitorial to an adversarial one. This system is similar to the one adopted in the United States.

The research questions considered in this experiment hypothesized whether the change in the system would lead to more individuals reporting crimes. Another question asked was whether or not it would lead to higher rates of criminal acquisition. The third question asked was whether the change in the system would or would not lead to higher rates of convictions and finally the last question asked was whether the change in system would or would not bring about a higher rate of acquittal (Tiede, 2008).

The research methodology of this experiment was quasi based by dividing people on into treatment and control groups based on naturally occurring circumstances. The control groups refer to those where the reform was not implemented while the treatment group constitutes the reform group implementations.

In larger urban areas the reforms showed an increase in conviction and a decrease in acquittal rate while showing significant increase in the rate of crimes reported and no increased apprehension rate. In rural areas however, the results showed a decrease in conviction and an increase in acquittal rate. There was also an increase in the rate of crimes reported with no increase apprehension rate (Tiede, 2008).
