Wrongful Convictions Blog

WVU-Law In conjunction with the Forensics & Investigative Science Department and the West Virginia Innocence Project, The West Virginia University College of Law, is launching the first national LL.M. in Forensic Justice. The one-year degree responds to the 2009 National Academy of Sciences Report on Forensic Sciences and the need for these scientific disciplines to be validated, and for lawyers to better comprehend how findings are used in the courtroom. Courses will be taught by both law faculty and forensic & investigative science faculty on topics such as Impression and Trace Evidence, Forensic Quality Assurance, and Foundations of Criminalistics. All courses are specifically created and structured for attorneys and for the use of science in the courtroom. Applications are now being accepted.

This project has been ongoing for over 10 years and it required many breaks and gigs and gigs of research. The subject isn't easy but it is important in my view. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a line.
