When science meets law: forensic epidemiology in legal practice

13-08-2018 tot 17-08-2018

Radboud University Nijmegen

From 13 August to 17 August 2018, Radboud Summer School offers a course on forensic epidemiology – a fast-developing field in which scientific methods are used to support fact finding in legal procedures. Many law practitioners are confronted with scientific approaches to evaluate evidence, without having knowledge of the principles and assumptions behind the scientific methodology. Accordingly, (bio)medical scientists are increasingly relied upon to provide legal case analysis and expert testimony, but they lack insight in the basics of legal practice.

This course offers the unique opportunity for students (postgraduate master or PhD level) and professionals with either a legal or epidemiologic background to learn more about the fascinating field connecting their disciplines.
