Forensics, Statistics and Law Conference

The Virginia Journal of Criminal Law and the Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence will host a one-day conference entitled Forensics, Statistics and Law on Mar. 26, 2018 at the University of Virginia School of Law. This conference focusing on forensic evidence and its use in the courtroom will mark the 25th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals Inc. decision.

The program will focus on how to develop better forensic evidence, how to analyze it more accurately in the crime lab and how to present it more effectively in criminal cases. Judge Jed Rakoff of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York will deliver the keynote address.

Pre-registration is not required for this program. A live stream of the conference will be available here.

Information about additional forensic evidence training programs is available on the IDS Forensic website.
