The use of forensic evidence in criminal and civil litigation
A 3-day training programme for solicitors, barriers and senior legal officers from emerging economies with “common law jurisdiction”. Manchester, UK, 18th - 20th March 2013
We are pleased to support this conference organised by Broadway Ltd by providing the lecturers including Professor Allan Jamieson, Dr Scott Bader, and Carrie Mullen each of whom have extensive experience in criminal casework.
The use of forensic evidence in civil and criminal cases is growing as is the demand that all jurisdictions should meet minimum scientific standards. As biometrics data collections (such as fingerprints and DNA) increase in developing countries, these new evidence types have improved the power of forensic science. This 3-day Forensic training programme is primarily designed as familiarisation for solicitors, barriers and senior legal officers from emerging economies with “common law jurisdiction”. The aim of the programme is to develop delegates' capacity on the use of forensic evidence in criminal & civil litigation, procedures and adjudications.
