7th Annual Post-Conviction Conference
In The Mix? Dealing with DNA, Cognitive Bias & Habeas in the Innocence Case
Presented in collaboration with the Innocence Network and supported by a grant awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance
NACDL, in collaboration with the Innocence Network, presents an essential new training specifically for lawyers who handle post-conviction innocence clams. National experts will provide state-of-the-art instruction on topics essential for today’s post-conviction litigation: low level DNA mixture interpretation and cognitive bias in the forensic sciences, as well as a federal habeas overview and strategies. Recent developments in DNA mixture interpretation make this training crucial for any lawyer involved in potential innocence claims. Our experts will provide a scientific primer on DNA mixtures, then move on to new developments, guideline changes, and the impact on post-conviction cases. In the afternoon, our expert faculty will discuss the science of cognitive bias and provide practical instruction on how to use that information in your cases. Indispensable instruction on federal habeas relief will round out the program.
