FS 587 Graduate Practicum in Forensic Chemistry

A supervised internal full-time practicum at the Fredric Rieders Family Renaissance Foundation (FRFRF). Principles and techniques of the forensic identification of chemicals including the weighing/ sampling of evidence as well as presumptive and confirmatory identification will be used to process casework samples, conduct analyses, interpret results, write reports, and participate in moot court experiences. Students have multiple hands-on casework samples, laboratory experiences, and the assistance of forensic practitioners in the preparation and execution of appropriate reports, analyses, and court testimonies. Students also learn those analytical techniques used for the forensic analysis of trace evidence.
