About the Book

Science for Lawyers clearly explains and discusses 13 applied scientific disciplines in jargon-free language that is specifically geared toward lawyers. The book explores the definitions (what is science), the practice (what scientists do) and the professional roles (what ethical guidelines influence scientists) of 13 professional disciplines such as:
  • Ballistics

  • Medicine

  • Physics

  • Statistics

  • Linguistics

  • Genetics

  • Chemistry

  • and More!
With dozens of photos, figures, graphics and artwork, the book covers these subjects in terms that are not only easy to understand, but fascinating to read. If you are a lawyer who is ever called upon to defend, proceed against, examine, cross-examine or even consult a scientist, this book is for you.

What Others Are Saying ...

"The clear, pragmatic text is ideal for quickly grasping the general basics of each science as well as its applications in the modern judicial system. An enthusiastically recommended reference for lawyers, paralegals, judges, and anyone in the court industry who doesn't already have multiple science degrees."

James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
