Andrea Roth joined the Boalt faculty in 2011. Before coming
to Boalt, she was a teaching fellow for three years at Stanford Law School.
Before Stanford, she worked for over eight years as a trial and appellate
attorney at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia (PDS).
At PDS she was a founding member of a Forensic Practice Group that studied
and litigated forensic DNA typing, and has lectured nationally on forensic
science-related issues. Her research focuses on the use of forensic science
in criminal trials, the continuing viability of the lay jury, and the ways
in which pedigreed concepts of criminal procedure and evidentiary law must
be retheorized in an era of science-based prosecutions. Her articles include "Defying DNA:
Rethinking the Role of the Jury in an Age of Scientific Proof of
Innocence," 93 Boston U. L. Rev. -- (forthcoming 2013), and "Safety in
Numbers?: Deciding When DNA Alone Is Enough To Convict," 85 N.Y.U. L.
Rev. 1130 (2010).
Roth graduated in 1998 from Yale Law School,
where she won the John Currier Gallagher Prize for best presentation in the
mock trial competition. After law school she clerked for Justice Dana Fabe
of the Alaska Supreme Court. She holds undergraduate degrees in mathematics
and political science from the University of New Mexico.
