Forensic DNA and the Errors of Human Justice

Forensic Pseudoscience –  The Unheralded Crisis of Criminal Justice:  No human endeavor is completely without error, and one might wonder just how systemic the problems of forensic science truly are. The claim of crisis is far from universally shared. But the problem is therefore not that forensic science is wrong, but that it is hard to know when it is right.  Students can weight the arguments and consider the necessity and limitations of human systems of justice.  (See also David Skeel’s discussion of optimism and pessimism in theories of justice in True Paradox: How Christianity Makes Sense of Our Complex World.)
