Legal Aspects of Forensics, Second Edition is intended for students who would like to become knowledgeable in the basic aspects of law, as a preparation for the understanding of the scientific methods currently used in the elucidation of crimes. Focusing on the aspects of law that make use of forensic science methods, it does not require a previous background in either law or science, but does provide this background as far as law is concerned. Indeed, forensic science has made huge advances in recent years, leading to the solving of crimes that previously would have remained in the dark. Blood analysis, DNA investigations, and improved fingerprint analysis can make the difference between convicting an innocent person and releasing a dangerous criminal. Offering examples of cases that represent landmarks in the types of evidence being considered admissible or not, as well as cases solved by the use of scientific methods, this handbook is ideal for students interested in a law career, or those intrigued by the forensic science methods used today.
