Contextual Bias in Forensic Science....

What is it, how do we detect it, and what can we do about it?


Hosted by:  Cedar Crest College, Allentown, PA 


The topic of “bias” and its implications for forensic practice has been hotly debated and researched in forensic and academic circles over the last decade.  The 2009 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) report on the state of forensic science in the USA and the 2016 President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report on forensic science recommend that forensic practitioners address issues relating to bias in forensic science and provide evidence to the fact finder that they have done so.
