    Program Overview:

    Chemical fingerprinting, groundwater modeling and other scientific methods are available to help you advance your client’s position. But before incurring the expense of retaining a scientific expert to collect and analyze data, it is paramount that you have a firm understanding of the scientific methods such experts will rely upon to opine, among other things, how and when a discharge occurred and the extent of the impact. Join our esteemed faculty as they identify and explain the various scientific methods available to help you further your cause, factors to consider in deciding whether to retain a scientific expert, and whether such experts have survived Daubert challenges. Speakers will also respond to questions from the audience.
