Roger Williams University School of Law will host a symposium on child witnesses in sexual-abuse cases from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 10 Metacom Ave., Bristol. The symposium will bring together leading researchers in the field from the law, psychology, public policy and communications industries for a lively discussion.

The event will address the following questions: How believable are children when they accuse someone of sexually abusing them? Can we tell when children are truthful, lying or relating false memories implanted by adults? If a child has difficulty testifying eye-to-eye with an alleged abuser in open court, should the court allow the child to testify from the judge’s chambers by closed-circuit TV or permit adults – such as doctors, social workers, teachers, police – to testify about what the child told them? How are public opinion and the judicial system affected by media coverage of such cases?

Registration: $75, includes continental breakfast, lunch and six Rhode Island MCLE credits. For more information or to register, contact the RWU Law Office of Alumni, Programs and Events at (401) 254-4659 or
