Unlike what the public is exposed to through the CSI Effect, where results are always obtained in a case using state of the art equipment. The reality within the forensic science laboratory is that evidence is very fragile, and often examinations may not yield probative results. However, expert witnesses must be able to explain these results to the jury in order to help them understand that in reality, viable results are not always obtained, and the many factors that can have an effect on the evidence. During this session, the importance of articulating the significance of negative results will be discussed and how it can have an impact on the trial process.
