FSEM: Beauty of Fornsc Evidnc
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Have you ever wondered where physical evidence comes from, or how it comes to be found at a crime scene? How is physical evidence examined and interpreted by forensic scientists? Physical evidence left behind by a perpetrator following an act of violence can appear quite beautiful when studied under a microscope. In this course students will learn about the history of forensic science, through readings of some of the world’s oldest literature and through reviewing some notable cases. In the laboratory students will also examine materials that are commonly found at crime scenes. Topics to be discussed will include key legal and scientific challenges facing forensic scientists, how evidence examinations are interpreted, admissibility of physical evidence in court, how forensic scientists work with attorneys, and expert testimony.
