Rethinking Forensic Science: We know what it is, but what does it mean?
with Prof. Ruth Morgan
We think of forensics as a science - dispassionate and objective. But can we say the same about the humans who interpret it and decide what it means?
Learn about this Garden Talk
When we think about forensic science, we think about scientific evidence that leads to a conviction. But humans interpret this evidence and are the ones who are responsible for working out what it means.
In this illuminating Garden Talk, Professor Ruth Morgan explores the question, how common is the misinterpretation of evidence in criminal cases? And what can we do about it?
