The American Meteorological Society’s First National Conference on Forensic Meteorology held in New Orleans in November 1976 is an excellent indicator of the willingness of scientists in weather to bring lawyers and meteorologists together. There always has been room for lawyers and physical scientists to interact in the legal processes. Scientific advisors and witnesses have been heard in trials, administrative proceedings, and legislative committee hearings. Circumstances are now bringing lawyers and scientists closer together. Just as lawyers began to learn more of automobiles as the motor vehicle became our national plaything and symbol, and more of medicine as malpractice cases loomed larger in legal practice, lawyers will gain more familiarity with weather modification technology with its increasing practice. Lawyers should play a role along with other social scientists in such federal weather modification programs as the National Hail Research Experiment and the High Plains Experiment.
