Define Forensic Science. What distinguishes it from Criminalistics?
It is that part of science applied to answering legal questions. It is the examination, evaluation, and explanation of physical evidence in law. It encompasses pathology, toxicology, anthropology, Odontology, psychiatry, documents, tool-mark comparison, and many other fields. Criminalistics is only the study of evidence and Forensic Science covers much more than just that.
