Atwater Attends “Whiskey in the Courtroom” Symposium Sponsored by Duke Law

The 2016 “Whiskey in the Courtroom” Symposium, which was held at the Durham County Judicial Building  was directed at attorneys who handle cases involving forensic evidence. The program addressed various types of forensic science evidence and the legal issues related to expert testimony, discovery, and admissibility of forensic evidence.

The title of the program, “Whiskey in the Courtroom”, was taken from a late 19th Century North Carolina case in which the verdict was overturned because the jury had been drinking whiskey during deliberations.
