Forensic Science is a multidisciplinary subject used for probing crime scene & gathering evidence to be used in prosecution of offenders in a court of law. While pursuing a degree in forensic science, important criminal subjects are being taught to the students so that they should get through knowledge of criminal justice system in India, hierarchy of criminal courts with its powers and functions, duties and powers of police officers, evidentiary value of expert’s opinion, F.I.R. and lie detector test.
Besides this, we keep our students updated discussing with them landmark judgments given by courts & recent amendments carried out in criminal law subjects. Study of substantive & procedural laws i.e. IPC (Indian Penal Code), Cr.p.c. (Criminal Procedure Code) and IEA (Indian Evidence Act) helps our students to be familiar with the procedure followed in a court. To have practical exposure of court proceedings, our students visit courts, police stations and prisons on regular interval as part of their curriculum as well as students perform ‘street play’ on various socio-legal issues which creates legal awareness in society.
