Upcoming Seminar on Eyewitness ID in Seattle: May 4, 2007

At an upcoming CLE seminar (PDF) in Seattle, experts on the subject of eyewitness identification from the social sciences, law enforcement, and the criminal defense community will gather to discuss the ongoing, broad-based reform effort. Speakers include Gary Wells, who will discuss current research on eyewitness memory and what it tells us about the reliability of certain procedures, Lieutenant Ken Patenaude from Northampton, Massachusetts, who will talk about his (successful) experience with the reform protocols in his jurisdiction, and D.C. public defender Timothy O'Toole, who will discuss defense strategies for attacking unreliable identification protocols in court.
