The next CSAFE webinar, “Mock Juror Perceptions of Forensics,” will be held Tuesday, Dec. 8 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST.
The webinar will cover the outcomes of two recent studies. The first study focused on whether knowledge of an expert’s performance on blind proficiency testing affects trust in the expert witness, the evidence and verdicts.
The second study looked at whether judicial intervention to limit firearms conclusions has its intended effect on jurors. Also, if cross-examination impacts jurors’ perception of firearm testimony.
The webinar will be presented by Brandon Garrett, L. Neil Williams Professor of Law, Faculty Director at the Wilson Center for Science and Justice; Nicholas Scurich, Associate Professor of Criminology, Law & Society, Vice Chair of the Department of Psychological Science at the University of California, Irvine; and William Crozier, Research Director of the Wilson Center for Science and Justice.
