Science, Technology, & Criminal Justice examines the issues that trial and appellate judges confront when addressing the scientific breakthroughs and technological advancements that appear with increasing frequency in criminal proceedings. The book assesses how judges treat the admissibility of both the results and the procedures of different forensic techniques in criminal trials. This assessment - critical in determining how our legal system will maintain the appropriate balance between protecting our personal safety, and preserving our civil liberties in a time of amazing scientific discoveries - culminates in an analysis of how the disciplines of law and science come together in the pursuit of justice.
