Co-director and co-founder of the project Barry C. Scheck shared his knowledge of the criminal justice system with the Moritz community on Oct. 7 when he presented the 2014 David H. Bodiker Lecture on Criminal Justice at the Saxbe Auditorium.

In 1988, Scheck and co-founder Peter J. Neufeld became involved in studying and litigating issues concerning the use of forensic DNA testing. Their work not only shaped the course of case law across the country but helped lead to an influential study by the National Academy of Sciences on forensic DNA testing, as well as important state and federal legislation setting standards for the use of DNA testing. They both serve as members of the New York State’s Commission on Forensic Science, a body that regulates all crime and forensic DNA laboratories in the state.
