The 6th Annual Medico-Legal Death Investigation Seminar will be held during the week of May 13th through the 17th, 2013.   Though sponsored by the Professional Studies in Applied Forensic Sciences and Criminal Investigations Program, the training will be hosted by Emmanuel College, 400 The Fenway, Boston, MA.

This unique training opportunity is designed to benefit law enforcement investigators, crime scene specialists, prosecutors, medical personnel and those whose professional responsibilities include or interact with any facet of medico-legal death investigations.

The five day seminar is lecture based and follows a death investigation from the crime scene to the courtroom. This thorough, in depth approach will incorporate more than twenty topics. Each instructor brings to the podium a wealth of knowledge and experience in their field. They are all subject matter experts and most importantly current practitioners in their specialty.

This extraordinary forum is made possible through a collaborative effort of advisors and speakers from the Boston University School of Medicine, Massachusetts State Police, Boston Police, Massachusetts District Attorneys’ offices, The State Fire Marshall’s Office and The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
