Forensic science starts at the crime scene and ends in the courtroom. The researchers at FIU Law and the department of legal psychology provide a comprehensive approach to GFJC’s mission in uniting the sciences for justice.
Working with the Florida Center for Capital Representation (FCCR), we can not only ensure sound forensic science is applied to wrongful convictions – but ensure miscarriages of science aren’t in practice again.
Researchers at FIU have expertise topics including witness memory, interrogations, investigative interviewing, lineups, deception detection and juror decision-making. FIU is one of the few universities in the world with a doctoral concentration in legal psychology.
The GFJC provides a training avenue for both the FIU Legal Psychology and FIU Law teams through contracted and partnered work.
