In keeping with its longtime mission of bridging the knowledge gap between legal and scientific professionals, the Wecht Institute is pleased to announce Forensic Fridays, a series of monthly seminars geared toward offering the region's attorneys, nurses, physicians and others a firmer grounding in many of the scientific disciplines upon which their work relies and their application to the criminal, civil and family justice systems. Offered both individually and as a package, these seminars are designed to confer both educational value and continuing education credit to working professionals in a variety of fields allied with the practice of forensic science.
