A panel discussion with NIST researchers and the CSAFE team on the likelihood ratio

Type: Webinar
Research Area: Forensic Statistics

This CSAFE Center Wide Webinar was presented on March 1, 2018 by a panel of speakers who examine the impact of the likelihood ratio in a legal context, how to communicate the likelihood ratio to lay audiences and more, followed by a time for questions from the audience.

Panelists:
Dr. Steve Lund and Dr. Hari Iyer- NIST Mathematical Statisticians
Dr. Hal Stern- CSAFE Co-Director and Professor of Statistics, University of California, Irvine
Dr. William Thompson- CSAFE Researcher and Professor Emeritus at University of California, Irvine
