In this course, we will explore the use of probabilistic and statistical evidence and inference in various legal contexts. Some of the contexts we will explore include discrimination claims, health effects litigation, securities fraud, screening and profiling in criminal cases, medical monitoring claims, damages in commercial cases, and DNA and other identification evidence. Our focus will be on the basic concepts of probability and statistics, as these concepts have been used, abused, and misunderstood in the courts, regulatory agencies, and legislatures. Computations will be relegated to minor importance, and will not require mathematics beyond high school algebra. No previous study in statistics is required.
