I’ll be presenting two talks on my book Failed Evidence: Why Law Enforcement Resists Science (2012) in Cleveland on Wednesday, July 17. The first event, at noon will be at noon, part of the ACLU’s Brown Bag series; details here. The second will take place at 7:00 pm; click here for details and RSVP information. Both events are free and open to the public. Location for both the Wohl Civil Liberties Center, 4506 Chester Ave., Cleveland, OH 44103. The talks are sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers; non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The 7:00 pm event (but not the noon event) has been approved for 1.0 units of Ohio CLE credit.
We’ll have a full discussion of the big issue: with science such an important part of life, why does law enforcement ignore so much of it that could improve the criminal investigation process? We’ll also get into concrete suggestions for improvement.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
