Forensic Evidence: Expertise; Ethics; and Effectiveness

23 July 2012 | 9:00am to 6:00pm | Seminar
Moot Court Room, The Liberty Building

Forensic science provision in the UK and internationally, is going through a period of sustained upheaval and critical scrutiny. While questions of economics remain unanswered (the affordability of forensic science and the ideal delivery model), other controversies refuse to abate: the successful distinction between 'experts' and non-experts within the criminal process; the ethics of police and State use of some forensic techniques; and the effectiveness of different forensic disciplines. These, and other, controversies will be the focus of a one-day symposium at Leeds University, with leading international experts from forensic science, law and cognate disciplines.
