Not just CSI
by: Forensics_Girl

Hello there.

Your question is one that I often hear from young people, and on the I blame television shows like CSI for.

Forensics is a very broad discipline. It is defined as the application of science to legal proceedings. There are many non cases other than criminal investigation? These include missing persons cases, paternity disputes, insurance work, numerous civic cases and a number of environmental issues.

I hope this helps.

I am a Forensic Serologist. I work on plenty of cases that are not criminal investigations. A few examples are missing person identification, paternity analysis, and infidelity cases.
