Scientists, pseudoscientists, nonscientists, and enthusiasts — a chaperoned exploration of the present state of crime scene investigation and criminalistics. This presentation will revolve around the sciences and practitioners in, and absent from, these critically important areas within the criminal justice arena. Attention will be focused on the criminalistics tools used in event (crime scene) reconstruction including so-called bloodstain pattern analysis and others.
The credits offered by this course count toward the CLE requirement of Criminal Procedure Rule 801, for appointment as defense counsel in a capital case.
Recorded at Day 2 of the Criminal Law Symposium in June 2022.
