Details and specs:


Introduction to Forensic Writing is a guidebook to help navigate the writing process for all forms of documents and records that may ultimately end up in court. This book analyzes the best practices for the creation and management of written reports, documentary evidence, correspondence, crime scene notes and reports. Risk management guidelines for organizations that handle these documents are a must as are the precedents and standards. Guidance is also provided to assist those who introduce this evidence in court. Writing samples provide practical assistance together with an examination of strategic approaches to writing for a variety of professions and disciplines intersecting with law and governance. This is the first Canadian book, and possibly the first book-length study ever, on the topic of forensic writing. For that reason alone it should find itself on the shelves of courthouse libraries, judge's libraries, prosecution offices, police stations, and any firm that practices criminal law.
