Scientific Evidence focuses on the admissibility of expert testimony as well as physical, biological, and psychological data. Topics include judicial evaluation of experts and data, particularly the relationship of specific data to its larger scientific field and the scientific foundation of expert opinion, as well as statistical, research, and forensic methods. Depending upon the nature of the case at hand, you will also encounter one or more topics in the vast myriad of life and physical sciences information, such as genetics, epidemiology, psychology, economics, and geology.
