Failed Evidence:  Why Law Enforcement Resists Science

Pitt Law Professor David Harris will discuss his latest book, Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science. The book is a direct challenge to police and prosecution
leadership, who have failed to come to grips with the insights that science has supplied for routine types of traditional police work, like eyewitness identification, suspect interrogation, and forensics. The science concerning these issues is rigorous, well documented, and replicated. It tells law enforcement not only what not to do in order to avoid miscarriages of justice but how to do the same tasks with a much lower risk of mistakes. Yet, with the exception of DNA work, law enforcement has not embraced science.

This program is free and open to all Pitt Law alumni.  Members of the ACBA are invited to attend.

Lunch generously provided by the Pitt Alumni Association.

We are no longer accepting RSVP's for this event.
