The word “forensic” originates from the Latin word ‘forensis’, which means public, to the forum, or public discussion. A modern definition of “forensic” is relating to, used in, or suitable to a court of law. Any science used for the purposes of the law is a forensic science. Forensic sciences deal with the application of scientific knowledge to legal problems and they are vital tools for unearthing the truth in any legal proceeding.
Forensic sciences, including forensic chemistry, forensic biology, forensic anthropology, forensic medicine, forensic materials science, forensic engineering, computational forensics and so on, are broadly used to resolve civil disputes, to justly enforce criminal laws and government regulations, and to protect public health.
