This conference will address new issues in forensic science with an emphasis on how the litigator’s practice is affected and what must be done to incorporate cutting-edge issues into successful discovery, motion practice and cross-examination. The continued expansion and growing use of DNA in prosecutions means counsel must become thoroughly familiar, not only with DNA analysis, but the companion topics of Low Copy DNA and likelihood ratios rather than simply relying on experts. DNA typing itself is no longer static, and this year we will present new issues involving this aspect of DNA analysis. NYS forensic laboratories contain a treasure trove of essential documents regarding forensic analysis which are generated by the laboratories themselves as well as by accrediting agencies which monitor their work. Accessing this information, interpreting it and utilizing the same in overall case preparation is crucial to successful litigation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: During last year’s conference, NYU Professor Erin Murphy presented a 50 minute Introduction to DNA. It is highly recommended that those who did not attend listen to the lecture in advance of this year’s conference to better understand and get the most out of Ms. Goldthwaite’s presentation. Professor Murphy’s lecture is available free of charge under Forensics and the Law IV, October 17-18, 2014 at: www.nysba.org/crimvideos
