While expert witnesses and forensic evidence increasingly have taken a dominant role in both criminal and civil litigation, lawyers remain largely untrained in the scientific method. In 2009, the National Academy of Sciences was highly critical of the use and abuse of forensic evidence, noting the difficulty in determining its reliability. Combined with Law, Science and Experts: Criminal and Civil Forensics, this book meets this challenge head-on, providing the complete experiential package and helping to transform the classroom. It contains eight criminal and civil case problems, offering students exciting, unparalleled learning opportunities.
