Summary

Scientifically rigorous and accessible forensic science is crucial to the criminal justice system, but how does the  science community and judiciary ensure exacting standards are reinforced to uphold the law? Historically, scientists and the judiciary rarely seek each other’s counsel outside the theatre of the courtroom.

Join us for a very public conversation with leading international forensic chemist Professor Niamh Nic Daéid and an esteemed member of the judiciary to discuss how their professional ecosystems can work together to raise standards and in turn raise public confidence in the justice system.

This is an 18+ event. This venue is licensed. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. The Queensland Museum Network supports the responsible consumption of alcohol at all events.
