The Impact of Bias on the Outcome of Forensic Investigations

A Forensic Fridays Seminar

Friday, MARCH 15

12:30 - 4:00 p.m.
Africa Room, DU Union
and ONLINE via LIVE videostream

Most of us like to think that when it comes to seeing that justice is done, forensic scientists are more objective than most, having been trained in scientific methodology and sworn to draw conclusions based solely on where the facts lead them. And yet, from implicit to cognitive biases, honest mistakes are made every day that can have life-altering effects on defendants, victims and society at large. Please join our panel of investigators, attorneys, scientists and ethicists as we explore this critical issue in criminal and civil justice.

Speakers to be announced soon!

This course is approved by the Pennsylvania CLE Board for 2 hours of Substantive CLE and 1 hour of Ethics CLE credit.
Continuing Education Units are pending for Nurses, Social Workers, Psychologists, and Coroners.
