Identity Crisis - Forensic Science

This article in The Economist touches on many issues, and is worth the short read.   

The reference to Scientists and lawyers come from different cultures with different languages does strike a chord.  It is apparent more often than one would think, which highlights that discussions are regularly required to ensure the actual evidence, any limitations associated with the evidence, and the manner in which the evidence has been determined is clearly understood .... and articulated. 

Our post on May 27, 2015 linked to How to Cross-Examine Forensic Scientists - A Guide to Lawyers which explores this subject in some depth.
