Online Course: "How Science Should Speak to Court"


Challenging Forensic Science

The aim of this course is to promote critical thinking with regard to forensic science. This course – given by specialists in the field – goes beyond the conventional image that is promoted through TV series such as CSI. It alerts (without alarming) the public on the limits of the techniques in order to promote a sound administration of forensic science in the criminal justice system. It allows participants to understand the importance of probabilistic reasoning in forensic science, because uncertainty is a constitutive part of forensic science.
The course offerend by COURSERA has been prepared by the School of Crriminal Justice, University of Lausanne. Registration starts on November 20, 2018. All details can be found at
