The Oregon Innocence Project is presenting this CLE, scheduled for Feb. 5, 2016:
“Presented by Oregon Innocence Project and featuring Professor Daniel Reisberg.
Scientific research has prompted numerous reforms in how police collect eyewitness identification evidence and how courts evaluate this evidence. Some prosecutors and some in the scientific community have begun to voice challenges to this research and the reforms that flow from it. Daniel Reisberg, Patricia & Clifford Lunneborg Professor of Psychology at Reed College, will discuss this ongoing debate, with a specific focus on the “sequential lineup”. Dr. Reisberg will also consider the broader issue of how, in general, science can guide the justice system and how attorneys might address these points.
Lunch will be provided. 1.5 CLEs will be earned by attendees.
Date: February 5, 2016
Time: 12pm – 1.30pm
Location: Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, PacWest Center, 1211 SW 5th Ave., Ste. #1900, Portland, OR 97204.
Tickets cost $30 (including lunch) and are available through Eventbrite.” [Link to event website.]
