Looking at DNA Technology From a Legal Perspective

Improve your court testimony by learning to look at DNA technologies from a legal perspective. In this NIJ-sponsored webinar hosted by the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence, Ted Hunt, a chief trial attorney in the prosecuting attorney’s office in Kansas City, Missouri, describes current issues prosecutors face when presenting forensics evidence in court and legal challenges that must be considered in order for the law and DNA forensic science to be in accord. This webinar includes a discussion of advanced DNA analysis technologies, the potential admissibility challenges to next generation technologies and why an interdisciplinary approach and preparation are necessary when implementing next generation sequencing technologies.

The course, approximately 60 minutes long, is available on-demand from the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence.
