Is forensics still reliable?

Forensic science is a field in crisis. There has been much concern about its reliability following cases where the misuse of forensic evidence has led to wrongful convictions. This presentation hosted by the Merseyside Skeptics Society will provide some fascinating information about the history and development of forensic science and how it is viewed from both within the field and externally, including the development of the new Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science in Scotland.

The talk will be presented by Niamh Nic Daéid, a Professor of Forensic Science and Director of the new £10M Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science, who also works with INTERPOL, the UN and the International Criminal Court.

As with all Merseyside Skeptics events, the event is open to anyone. There is no need to book, but if you want to make sure you get a seat it's a good idea to arrive a bit early.

The event is free, though the organisers may ask for a donation towards the running costs during the evening.

The event has wheelchair access, via a portable ramp which can be installed on-demand. If you need it, if possible, please let the organisers know in advance via email (at so they can have the ramp set up for you.
