Tuesday 17th Sept 7.30pm (NZST). Live from Central Library Palmerston North, Lecture 7 in the 10x10 series - Weighing the evidence. Advances in science have allowed forensic practitioners to recover and quantify evidence from crime scenes in more ways than ever before. As a consequence, judges, lawyers, and juries struggle to decide or understand what the value of scientific evidence might be, and how it impacts on the case at hand. This talk will look at how statistics is being used to aid in the legal process.
