When: July 19-21, 2017
Registration at 8:00 am

  • This symposium is an intensive three-day forensics "boot camp" for prosecutors. The training will:
      • introduce prosecutors to issues raised in recent attacks on forensic science;
      • explain the science supporting forensic science disciplines including DNA, latent fingerprints, and firearms tool marks;
      • explore some common legal issues in forensic science, involving hearsay/ Crawford arguments and Daubert or Frye hearings;
      • discuss pending legislation that may impact forensic disciplines; and
      • address ethical issues that may arise in cases including forensic science—from ensuring that your Brady and Giglio obligations are discharged during discovery to avoiding errors in your closing arguments at trial.
  • WHEN: The training will begin in the morning on Wednesday, July 19 with registration at 8:00 am and end in the afternoon on Friday, July 21.
