Texas Forensic Science Commission

November 2-3 program on Understanding Forensic DNA for Lawyers and Judges 

This conference is free and will use a sexual assault crime scenario to explore DNA issues that arise during criminal investigations, at trial, and in post-conviction proceedings. It will address these issues from both scientific and legal perspectives, considering what DNA can and cannot tell us and how judges and lawyers can better understand the uses and limitations of DNA evidence.  This program will be held in Austin in the State Capitol auditorium and is sponsored by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the Texas Forensic Science Commission, the Texas Center for the Judiciary, the Texas District and County Attorneys Association and The Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
