Capital Litigation Initiative: Crime Scene to Courtroom Forensics Training Webinars

In 2016 and 2017, NCSTL is offering a series of eight webinars about forensic science and scientific evidence. Funded by a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance through its Capital Litigation Initiative, the webinars are intended for potential capital litigators, both prosecution and defense, who want to learn more about forensic science as it relates to capital cases.

Attendees who complete the course are eligible for free Continuing Legal Education credits. Stetson University College of Law's Office of Professional Education will work with each individual participant for reporting specifics. Email ope@law.stetson.edu for further information and state specific requests.

This project is supported by Grant No. 2015-CP-BX-K006 awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance. The Bureau of Justice Assistance is a component of the Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs, which also includes the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the National Institute of Justice, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Office for Victims of Crime, and the SMART Office.
