Many cases turn on scientific evidence, but not all scientific evidence is equally reliable. In fact, several types of scientific evidence have been discredited as pseudo-science. Whether you practice criminal law, personal injury law, workers’ compensation law, or civil litigation involving scientific data you need to know how to properly evaluate the scientific evidence in your case, how to spot the weaknesses in your opponent’s evidence, and how to work with scientific evidence to prove your case.
Your instructor Christine Funk has a unique combination of skills. She has an extensive track record as a criminal defense attorney and also is well respected in the field of forensic science. She consults routinely with attorneys in forensic science cases. As a licensed attorney, she not only is able to translate the science for the attorneys, she is capable of creating cross-examination questions, providing insight, interviewing forensic scientists, and working with attorneys to develop trial strategy, as well as support throughout the case, from admissibility hearings to trial. She also acts as a forensic science consultant with attorneys on appeal.
