Do judges need to know their Genetics?

Jim Evans, my friend here at UNC, says Yes, in an interview with NYTimes, and again on NPR’s People’s Pharmacy. He teaches a course on genetics to judges:

A lot of judges report that they did prelaw in college because it did not involve science. One of my favorite judges, a brilliant man, is fond of telling people he “flunked science in kindergarten.” So in these workshops, I think of myself as a newfangled type of science teacher, instructing extremely smart and distinguished adults in science fundamentals.
