American Academy of Forensic Sciences

The American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) is a professional society for people in all areas of forensics.

For over sixty years, the AAFS has served a distinguished and diverse membership. Its nearly 6,000 members are divided into eleven sections spanning the forensic enterprise. Included among the Academy's members are physicians, attorneys, dentists, toxicologists, physical anthropologists, document examiners, psychiatrists, engineers, physicists, chemists, criminalists, educators, and others. Representing all 50 United States, Canada, and 54 other countries worldwide, they actively practice forensic science and, in many cases, teach and conduct research in the field as well. Each section provides opportunities for professional development, personal contacts, awards, and recognition. Many sections publish periodic newsletters and mailings which keep their members abreast of activities and developments in their fields.
