Summary

A unique and sometimes murky melding of science, law enforcement and justice.

Forensic science has long held a public fascination, glamorised in popular culture. From DNA evidence, and human body farms to the dark web and the alarming rise of cybercrime, real life forensic experts inhabit a world just as exciting and weird as the fictional version.

Join our discussion as we interrogate a few modern CSI practitioners. Take a deep dive into current forensic  techniques and how they are used to convict 21st century criminals.
