Here is a description of the conference, from the conference Website:

DNA evidence and forensic science have once again brought mathematics into the courtroom. Numbers and statistics have helped distinguish the innocent from the guilty, but have also led to miscarriages of justice, for example, Dreyfus, Collins, Lucia de Berk. Is mathematics relevant in law at all? Do lawyers need mathematical training in statistics and logic? Can computers support legal decision making? This conference brings together experts in law, statistics, philosophy, and computer science to address these and related themes.
