Forensic Science is a science primarily concerned with the application of scientific principles for the investigation of crime and the purposes of the law, e.g. in a criminal investigation and trial. Forensic science is divided into criminalistics, forensic psychology and forensic pathology. Criminalistics is the science used to help understand the evidence in crimes, Forensic psychology is the study of the mind of a criminal, and Forensic pathology is the study of the cause of death.
