The challenges facing prosecutors, local law enforcement, investigators in prosecutor’s offices as well as the laboratory professionals seem to be increasing exponentially with the use by defendants of 21st-century sources of evidence.  With the variety of forensic evidence that must be collected, processed and retained, there is a need to make sure that prosecutors and their teams know the ins and outs managing complex, 21st-century evidence. This course covers foundational basics, as well as:

• Current Challenges in DNA
