    12:00 PM - 1:15 PM Quattrone Center Lunch Seminar: Deborah Tuerkheimer, “Flawed Convictions: ‘Shaken Baby Syndrome’ and the Inertia of Injustice”
    The emergence of “Shaken Baby Syndrome” presents an object lesson in the dangers that lie at the intersection of science and criminal law. As often occurs in the context of scientific knowledge, understandings of SBS have evolved. We now know that the diagnostic triad — the three neurological symptoms once equated with guilt — does not itself prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an infant was abused nor that the last person with the baby was responsible for the baby’s condition. Nevertheless, our legal system has failed to absorb this new consensus.
