The 27th Law and the Media Seminar will examine “Crimes Against Humanity: Science, Smugglers and Survivors.” This year’s two-theme, two-panel seminar includes journalists, attorneys and newsmakers at the intersection of two of Houston’s most challenging legal and societal issues: forensic science and exoneration controversies and the epidemic of human trafficking.
The first panel – “Evolution of Forensic Science and Exoneration Cases” – will explore developments in local and national forensic science and exoneration issues and provide practical and ethical considerations for lawyers and journalists.
The second panel – “Confronting the Human Trafficking Epidemic” – will explore the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies, the courts, and community advocates to solve the trafficking problem. The panel will discuss practical and ethical considerations for lawyers and journalists.
