This subject builds upon the discipline, knowledge and skills developed in 65316 Criminalistics. In Chemical Criminalistics, students learn methods to analyse, interpret and report on a variety of microtraces and chemical traces that require a higher level of analytical chemistry and forensic reasoning skills. Lectures are complemented by a practical program that allows students to gain hands-on experience with mock cases designed to sharpen their activity reconstruction capabilities, and workshops focused on evidence interpretation, emerging technologies and practices and casework management. At the end of this subject, students are proficient in selecting and using appropriate analytical procedures, forensic interpretation and expert witness reporting.
