September 15, 2008

Professor Michael Saks, of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, will be among the inaugural speakers this fall at the new Centre for Forensic Science and Medicine at the University of Toronto in Ontario.

Saks, a professor of law and psychology and Faculty Fellow in the College of Law's Center for the Study of Law, Science, & Technology, will speak on scientific and legal problems in forensic individualization sciences such as handwriting, bite marks and fingerprints.

In planning the Oct. 24 conference, titled "Current Controversies in Forensic Science and Medicine: Towards Resolution in the 21st Century," organizers identified an elite group of experts who exemplify the current state of forensic science in their discipline or have undertaken research that illuminates its use by the courts and the public.
