Through the use of case studies, worked examples and discussion groups, this course outlines the legal requirements of forensic statements, highlights best practice for statement writing, and helps delegates to develop their own writing style and hone their science writing skills. The course is designed for practitioners from all forensic disciplines, and evidence type-specific syndicate groups will focus on issues relating to delegates’ own areas of expertise. This course is presented by a team of experienced expert witnesses from a range of specialisms.
On completion of this course, delegates will have a thorough understanding of the requirements of forensic science statements and a good awareness of acceptable and unacceptable phraseology. This will be the basis for the continuing development of a personal writing style.
