‘Ethics and Eats’ Session is Third in Duquesne University’s Forensics Series

Ethical issues stemming from the use of unsubstantiated or “junk” science will be discussed at the next Ethics and Eats session on the campus of Duquesne University.

Hosted by The Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law,  will be held on Friday, Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. in the Africa Room of Duquesne’s Student Union.

This is the third installment in the Ethics and Eats series, which is offered both on site and online. It was created to provide attorneys an opportunity to meet their annual Continuing Legal Education (CLE) requirements during a convenient lunchtime session.

DNA scientist Dr. Mark Perlin and criminal defense attorney Michael Machen will be the featured presenters at the sessions, which offer two hours of ethics CLE credit. The onsite session is open to the public and other professionals.
