Rule 702 

FORENSICS, LAW & MEDICINE

One of the US Federal Rules of Evidence which governs admissibility of scientific evidence in US Federal District Courts and US Magistrates.

These rules provide that unless there is a specific exception, all relevant information is admissible. 

If scientific technical, or other specialised knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of opinion or otherwise, in Daubert v Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc, 113 S Ct 2786 1993.
