The Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law
Founded at Duquesne University in 2000, The Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law is an internationally acclaimed center for research, training, and professional education in applied forensic science. Through its global network of practitioner and scholar experts and its unique collaborations with the university's schools of Nursing, Law and Natural and Environmental Sciences, among other academic institutions, the Institute pursues interdisciplinary research into a broad array of subjects affecting the practice of forensic science today. These same partnerships support the Institute's Annual Forensic Science and Law Symposium and its quarterly professional education seminar series, Forensic Fridays, in addition to periodic training workshops for targeted professional audiences.
Please join us for our next Forensic Fridays presentation on March 21, 2014: "The Role of Computer Forensics in Data Breach Response."
