From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom: The Future of Forensic Science Reform

April 5–6, 2018
Georgia State University College of Law

The Georgia State University Law Review is pleased to announce its spring 2018 symposium, From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom: The Future of Forensic Science Reform. The symposium will bring leading legal scholars, national forensic science experts, and practicing attorneys and judges together for conversation about the future of forensic science reform on April 5–6, 2018.

From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing forensic science at this unique moment in time, including: avoiding and correcting wrongful convictions; minimizing human error; technological advances in forensic science; ethical conflicts; and the opportunity for states and localities to lead forensic science reform. We hope to foster meaningful debate on these important topics, and inspire collaboration that improves outcomes for all.

We are seeking written pieces of a variety of lengths and styles for inclusion in the upcoming symposium issue. Please review our Call for Papers for more details and submission instructions.

More information about the keynote address, specific panel discussions, and registration information will be posted here in January 2018.
