NAFE to Serve Federal Courts 

The National Academy of Forensic Engineers (NAFE)® along with the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) are among a very limited group of professional societies designated to make recommendations to the Federal Courts under a special program to provide independent scientific and engineering experts to trial judges (in addition to experts provided by litigants) to assist the courts in the most complex technical cases.


The program administered by the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) resulted from studies by the National Conference of Lawyers and Scientists (NCLS), a joint standing committee of AAAS and the Science and Technology Law Section of the American Bar Association (ABA) and will be titled as 'Court Appointed Scientific Experts (CASE).'


Coordination of the joint NSPE/NAFE participation will be made by NAFE, whose members are required to be registered as Professional Engineers (PE) and to be members of the NSPE.


For information regarding engineering participation in the program and the role of NSPE and NAFE, contact Arthur Schwartz, Executive Director.  Contact information can be found on the contact page.
