Ethics courses are a vital component of forensic science degree programs, and Ethical Justice is a resource specifically designed for instructors and students of forensic science and criminology. Case-based, and emphasizing practical ethical issues as opposed to ethics theory, this book provides a solid foundation in ethical dilemmas that can confront both students and professionals in the field. Encompassing issues arising in academia, law enforcement, and court and corrections systems, Ethical Justice is an inclusive, relevant work in applied ethics written by practitioners who also teach forensic science and criminology.
