          Recent Scholarly Activities from Professor David Faigman

          Professor David Faigman recently published the latest edition of his five-volume treatise “Modern Scientific Evidence: The Law and Science of Expert Testimony.”

          He has also published “The Daubert Revolution and the Birth of Modernity: Managing Scientific Evidence in the Age of Science” in the UC Davis Law Review. Professor David Faigman’s article “Wading into the Daubert Tide: Sargon Enterprises, Inc. v. University of Southern California” is forthcoming in the Hastings Law Journal.

          On March 14-15, Professor Faigman presented on standards of admissibility and the problem of reasoning from group data in science to individual decision-making in the law to a group of federal judges at a conference on Law, Neuroscience, and Criminal Justice at Stanford University School of Law. On March 22, 2013, he presented at a New Mexico CLE Bar Event: Presentation on Standards of Admissibility for Expert Evidence at a CLE organized by the New Mexico State Bar in Albuquerque, NM. On April 4, Professor Faigman presented a paper on reasoning from group data in law to individual decision making in the law at the University of Oregon, School of Law. On April 27, Professor Faigman discussed reasoning from group data in science to individual decision-making in the law at a conference on the Future of Law and Neuroscience sponsored by the American Bar Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation in Chicago. 

          In addition to his written scholarship and public speaking, Professor Faigman's work is cited often by courts in nearly every jurisdiction. His complete body of work is cited frequently (well over 100 times by state and federal courts), but the most substantial reliance on his scholarship occurred in United States v. Scheffer, 523 U.S. 303 (1998) and Sargon Enterprises, Inc. v. University of Southern Cal., 55 Cal.4th 747, 288 P.3d 1237, 149 Cal.Rptr.3d 614 (2012).
