The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) at RTI International, Duquesne University, and the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office are holding a workshop in Pittsburgh, PA on August 9th & 10th, 2016. The workshop will focus on information a likely to show up in cases involving forensic evidence, the technologies behind that evidence, and the impact of the Frye and Daubert standards for admissibility of expert testimony.
The legal profession strives to have a better knowledge of the scientific principles and technologies employed in forensic evidence analysis. Forensic practitioners and scientists have been actively developing methodologies and innovative technologies to analyze evidence. In turn, professionals in the criminal justice system who are responsible for making legal decisions must have an understanding of these technologies and the impact of Frye and Daubert standards on the admissibility of testimony about these technologies.
Criminal court judges, prosecuting and defense attorneys, and legal academicians are encouraged to apply. Space is limited to 25 attendees and nominations are required. The deadline for nominations has been extended to July 22. The FTCoE will provide workshop registration, airfare, lodging, and per diem expenses for all attendees. A Certificate of Completion will be provided to document two days of continuing education.
