Science in the Courtroom: An Examination of the Role Reason Plays (or Doesn't Play) in Modern Law

Does our legal system suffer from a lack of scientific and mathematical literacy? How would our legal system differ if more judges, lawyers and jurors possessed a working knowledge of basic mathematical and scientific concepts?

He graduated from Harvard College with an A.B. in physics, and earned a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, where he served as a Senior Editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review.
