Forensic Foundations provides one or two day workshops for professionals or organizations whose expertise may be called upon by the legal system.

Seminars differ from workshops in that they are shorter in duration and are less interactive – although questions are encouraged.
Seminars and speakers can be arranged for any group on topics including:

- Expert evidence.
Forensic Foundations offers individual training for experts called to give evidence. This training will not cover case specific issues but will cover the general issues and concerns experience by those about to give evidence.
