2013: Science or Schmience: You Be the Judge
|Event Start Date||Saturday, January 26, 2013|
Warren Hall Room 131
|Event Start Time||8:30 am - 3:15 pm|
A congressionally mandated report from the National Research Council found serious deficiencies in the nation’s science system and called for major reforms and new research. The 2009 NAS Report on forensic science went a long way in teaching us the limits of many long-venerated “sciences” such as latent print examination and eye witness identification.
This seminar focuses on the pitfalls and shortcomings of some forensic techniques and updates what we learned in the 2009 NAS Report as well as discussing the (ethical) use of social media in investigating and preparing our cases.
Speakers are seasoned members of the criminal justice community who will provide practical, professional and institutional perspectives.
University of San Diego School of Law is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider and certifies that this activity is approved for 5.5 hours of credit, of which 1.5 hours are Legal Ethics credit and 4.0 hours are General credit.
