Buting & Strang are back together again for NACDL’s upcoming webinar “MAKING A MESS: How Forensic Analysts Depart from Science.” Unreliable or tainted forensic evidence in criminal cases is simply unacceptable. Since Daubert, judges have been put in the position where they are essentially the gatekeepers to keep unreliable evidence from jurors, however, for many reasons that doesn’t work well, in practice. In this one hour webcast, Jerry Buting and Dean Strang will give you some ideas and thoughts about how real scientific evidence should be presented in the courtroom. They will discuss The Scientific Method, and how it was developed, provide a brief history of a variety of forensic science disciplines that have been developed over the years which really don't use The Scientific Method, and thus are unreliable. They will finish off the talk by providing participants with various resources and assistance available to criminal defense practitioners. The training will conclude with a live Q & A with the presenters.
Topics to be discussed:
1. A brief history of unreliable forensic science disciplines that have been developed over the years
2. The Scientific Method
