Forensic Science: For example, how does the Brady v. Maryland court case effect the forensic science professional’s ability to testify in court?
Write a research paper that outlines and describes the various legal, ethical, controversial and social issues within the forensic science field. The paper should identify and assess several local, national and international “case studies” that identify specific issues with forensic science. For example, how does the Brady v. Maryland court case effect the forensic science professional’s ability to testify in court? How does the emergence of DNA analysis change the culture of forensic science? What affect does a wrongful conviction have on the criminal justice system? Did forensic science help or hurt the OJ Simpson trial? The research paper should also compare and contrast the various strengths and limitations of forensic science technology, applications and methodology. Construct a coherent, organized expression appropriate to a variety of disciplines and audiences.
