The connection between science and criminal justice has never been more vital. We bring scientists, lawyers, and students together at Duke Law to do impactful research, policy, and teaching designed to improve criminal justice outcomes. Our work is non-partisan and evidence based. We seek to engage with state and local government and community stakeholders to translate research into effective and practical policy.
We are grateful for grant support from the Charles Koch Foundation for our work conducting criminal justice research in North Carolina and in Virginia. We are grateful for grant support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation for our work on eyewitness identifications. We are also grateful to be conducting forensic science research and educational work a part of the Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE).
