Some say it's impossible to predict the future of scientific evidence, but if we examine recent events and cases, we can see it emerging in many ways. There is no ignoring the impact of science on law today. New information in areas such as digital and multimedia sciences, canine scent detection, touch DNA and neuroscience is emerging daily. Each one requires new statutes or rules of evidence and today's lawyers are expected to keep up with such advancements both locally and globally.
This thought-provoking book was written to provide you with a glimpse into a new dawn of the future of evidence. The fields of law, science and technology intersect in both the civil and criminal areas and are developing at a rapid pace. So whether you are a lawyer preparing for a case that includes scientific evidence, a scientist preparing for court testimony, or an academic researching a forensic topic, this book will help keep you on top of the multitude of new theories, policies, laws and rules that you face every day.
