Duquesne University School of Law

Prof. Moriarty to address ethics, expert evidence

Thursday, October 27, 2016

Professor Jane Campbell Moriarty is giving a speech Turning a Blind Eye: Prosecutorial Ethics and Expert Evidence at the University of Akron School of Law this month.

The talk is part of The Joseph G. Miller and William C. Becker Center for Professional Responsibility lecture series, Prosecutors, Ethics and Promoting Justice

“There is a great deal of concern that much of the forensic science admitted in U.S. courts as evidence is not as reliable as one might hope,” said Moriarty, the Carol Los Mansmann Chair in Faculty Scholarship and law professor at Duquesne University School of Law.

“I will be discussing the use of this evidence and the ethical concerns that go along with it, including prosecutorial decisions concerning potentially unreliable evidence.”

Moriarty’s seminar is the second in the series which kicked off in April with a lecture by New York County District Attorney (Manhattan) Cyrus Vance Jr.
