Location: Nautilus 1

Time: 2:45 PM - 4:00 PM

Very recently, there have been significant changes in and around traditional forensic disciplines. Likewise, there have been significant changes in rules of professional and ethical conduct that are implicated when an attorney— defense or prosecutor— or lab technician becomes involved with these disciplines in an adjudicative context. This roundtable discussion will consider several hypothetical practice-based scenarios and ask the participants to navigate them in the specific context of: Model Rule of Professional Conduct 3.8(g) and (h);  Defense Function Standard 4-9.4; the ABA's Draft Resolution dated June 20, 2016; the National Code of Professional Responsibility for Forensic Scientists (The Code);  and the DOJ Code of Professional Responsibility for the Practice of Forensic Science.
