CALIFORNIA CRIMINAL LAW REVIEW

DNA Evidence Symposium, Autumn 2001

DNA evidence is revolutionizing the criminal justice system in the United States. In the same year that scientists finished the Human Genome Project, the New York City District Attorney secured an indictment for the East Side rapist using a DNA profile. New York Governor Pataki has called for an end to statutes of limitation for crimes involving DNA evidence. And in case after case, sentences including the death penalty have been overturned based upon DNA analysis of crime scene evidence, leading in Illinois to a moratorium on the death penalty.

CCLR is currently accepting proposals for articles and presentations for a symposium on the use of DNA evidence in criminal trials, in Autumn, 2001. The symposium will take place at The University of California, Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law. Articles and papers of any length will be published online, and traditional law review articles will be published in a printed symposium edition of CCLR. For more information or to propose an article, please send an e-mail to our submissions department.
