Forensics for lawyers: Advancements in Criminal Investigations. 

Hollywood has made us armchair experts on forensic investigative techniques used at crime scenes, but do you know how the Boy in the Box and the Golden State Killer cases were solved after so many years? Do you know how law enforcement identified the many insurrectors who invaded the capitol building on January 6?

It’s entertainment. And a critical element of forensic investigations. 

Lady Justice wears a blindfold, but you should not. This program offers an eye-opening introduction to new forensic techniques, from phenotyping and familial DNA to license plate readers and facial recognition technology.

Increase your science literacy.

Temple University Adjunct Professor of Law Samuel D. Hodge, Jr. returns to the dais with Ryan Gallagher, Manager of the DNA Unit for the Philadelphia Crime Lab, to introduce you to crime-solving techniques used in the 21st Century, including:
