                    [longdesc] => Guest speaker this year is the pre-eminent forensic scientist, Sue Black.

Sue has shed light on some of the darkest aspects of human violence, using forensic science to help many hundreds of people to identify the remains of loved ones and bring closure to tragic events, as well as bringing numerous criminals to justice both at home and in some of the world's most dangerous conflict zones.

She will discuss her unprecedented personal experiences and her deep commitment to scientific rigour, which leads her to push the frontiers of forensic science to ensure that the cause of justice is supported by the best quality science. Her focus on robust evidence is disrupting current practice, too much of which is based on inconclusive methods.

Sue will discuss the importance of breaking out of academic silos and the need to fully embrace interdisciplinary approaches in order to avert miscarriages of justice and rebuild public trust in the scientific method.

Enjoy an incredible disruptive speaker along with a spectacular meal, a competitive quiz and huge amounts of entertainment for an evening not to be missed!
