Student Academy Flyer
The purpose of the Student Academy of Forensic Sciences is to bring
to the attention of young people the vital importance of the application
of scientific principles to the administration of justice. It acquaints the
participants with the role of the forensic science disciplines in the legal
system as well as the education and training required for a career in
each of the disciplines.
The forensic sciences involve the application of scientific skills of examination and
evaluation to the resolution of social and legal issues. Law is the common core of the
forensic sciences. To be effective, the forensic scientist must not only be an expert in the
skills of his/her discipline, but must also be able to communicate his/her insights and
findings in a court of law and before administrative tribunals.
