There are two noon CLEs at MPD this week that are completely open to anyone: Karen Lawless on Wednesday in Hillsboro and Gail Meyer on Thursday in Portland.

This Wednesday at noon, Karen Lawless will be at MPD's Hillsboro office to do a presentation on DNA analysis - how it works and when it doesn't work. Karen Lawless is the President and Chief Scientist of Forensic Edge, a private forensic services and consulting firm. She was the lead instructor for the Oregon Regional Forensic Academy and an instructor for the Oregon State Police and DPSST. For more than a decade she was a lead analyst with the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory and, as such, wrote the standards for STR DNA typing, the predominant method of DNA analysis used today.

On Thursday at noon in the Portland office, Gail Meyer, OCDLA's brilliant lobbyist, will talk about the criminal bills that came out of the 2010 legislative session, the bills that are coming up in the near future and OCDLA's legislative goals. This will be part presentation and part brainstorming. Gail Meyer has handled substantive issues lobbying for OCDLA for the last two legislative sessions.

Anyone is welcome at MPD's brown bag presentations. No need to RSVP and no charge. Just come on by. They'll both be worth a CLE credit.
