Brandon L Garrett, L Neil Williams, Jr professor of law at the Duke University School of Law, will give a seminar on “Forensic Science and Wrongful Convictions” at the University of Glasgow School of Law on next Tuesday.
He will speak about new work he is carrying out on forensic science and his 2012 book Convicting the Innocent.
His research on the United States’ criminal justice system has ranged from the lessons to be learned from cases where innocent people were exonerated by DNA tests, research on false confessions, forensics, and eyewitness memory, to the difficult compromises that prosecutors reach when targeting the largest corporations in the world.
Professor Garrett’s books include Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong (2012) and Too Big To Jail: How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations (2014).
His latest book, End of its Rope: How Killing the Death Penalty Can Revive Criminal Justice, examines the implications of the decline of the death penalty, was published by Harvard University Press in the autumn of 2017.
