A discussion of the appropriate relationship between science and the law often devolves into discussing how scientific knowledge may be better transmitted into legal proceedings. Professor Jasanoff argues that this framing of the relationship between science and the law is asymmetric. She looks to science and technology studies in order to describe a more symmetric way of understanding the ideal relationship between science and the law.
