Forensic evidence, from DNA to fingerprints to ballistics, has never been more important in criminal cases. Actually litigating scientific evidence in the courtroom can be challenging and requires some specialized skills.
Duke University School of Law is excited to offer a short course on forensic evidence litigation, with CLE credit pending approval, at Duke Law in Durham, North Carolina.
The course is free and open to a small number of practicing criminal lawyers. Both prosecutors and defense attorneys are encouraged to attend. The course will be open to fifteen Duke Law students. The course will be most valuable for lawyers with some criminal experience, but without much experience litigating forensic science issues.
Enrollment is limited to a small number of participants. To apply please email the instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please include a CV and note any background interest and experience in litigating forensics issues.
