Journal of Law and Public Policy Publishes "Science for Judges III"

We're a little late in noticing this, but Brooklyn Law School's Journal of Law and Policy has published "Science for Judges III" -- papers from the third in a series of conferences addressing the use of scientific evidence in legal proceedings. This installment focuses on forensic evidence in criminal proceedings, including papers on fingerprint evidence, mitochondrial DNA, and bullet-lead matching. You can download the articles by going to the issue's online table of contents.
