The Center for Science and Justice at Duke Law School applies legal and scientific research to reforming the criminal justice system. The Center brings together faculty and students in law, medicine, public policy, and arts and sciences to pursue research, policy and law reform, and education in three areas: accuracy of evidence in criminal cases; the role of risk in criminal outcomes; and addressing a person’s treatment needs as an alternative to arrest and incarceration. Projects at the Center also examine the needs of formerly incarcerated persons who are re-entering society. The Center is led by Brandon Garrett, the L. Neil Williams, Jr. Professor of Law and a leading scholar of criminal procedure, scientific evidence and wrongful convictions.
