LMU Law Symposium to be live streamed

Fire line

The Lincoln Memorial University Duncan School of Law (LMU Law) and the LMU Law Review will live stream their annual symposium entitled, “Modern Forensic Science, Expert Testimony, and Exonerations as Applied to Fire Investigation.” The program will be presented from the LMU Law Courtroom on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020, in downtown Knoxville and can be viewed live here.

The event aims to inform and facilitate discussions about recent issues in fire and arson investigations raised by National Academies of Science (NAS) and American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The symposium will help law enforcement, lawyers and judges make more informed decisions as to the admissibility of forensic science, identify attorney and judges’ ethical roles in keeping junk science out of the courtroom and explore the challenges in attempting to exonerate those wrongfully convicted based on bad forensic science.
