Forensic Science Serving Justice: Looking to the Future
We're very pleased to be rounding off our 2018-19 lecture season with a special lecture by Professor Niamh Nic Daid, Director of the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee, titled Forensic Science Serving Justice: Looking to the Future. When we use science in the service of justice we expect it to be of the highest quality and deliver results in the most robust way possible. But is this really true? What is forensic science really and how do forensic scientists do their work? How does the interaction between the law and science work? How can citizens get involved in the scientific research work that is needed to underscore the evaluation and interpretation of evidence recovered from a crime scene, suspect or victim or should we even be asking this question? Dundee is at the centre of a forensic science revolution and evolution as the profession needs to regather itself to be fit for the 21st Century and the digital age. This talk will examine what forensic science is, where the strength and limitations are and how we can open up new and exciting possibilities for creating more robust science in the service of justice.
