Forensic Evidence in Context: Cases, Materials and Commentaries

Availability: In Stock

The sciences supporting forensic investigation have a strong publication pedigree with many textbooks, articles, and websites devoted to their pursuit. Indeed, the forensic expert — more times than not — is well-trained and ready to educate the court on the knowledge base in question. However, what is less likely to occur is the dissemination of accumulated expertise that is also accompanied by an awareness of the role and function of the various justice stakeholders. Often this lack of awareness includes truly appreciating the role of the expert.

This casebook will have value to those interested in the fields of law, criminology, and of course, forensic science.

In Forensic Evidence in Context: Cases, Materials and Commentaries, Brian Manarin has collected a wide array of case law, journal articles, and other valuable materials with a view to better prepare students and professionals alike for the time when they will be called upon to showcase their forensic talents.

This casebook will be valuable to those interested in the fields of law, criminology, and of course, forensic science. A fuller understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of the law and of forensic evidence should result. As well, a degree of introspection should occur in the backdrop of newfound awareness of how the justice system is designed to work in the realm of litigation.
