Researching forensics can be tricky because it covers a lot of different topics in the sciences. Below is a list of general topics which contain specific forensics and law sub-topics.
Toxicology: The study of toxic substances such as poisons and drugs.
Serology: The study of human fluids such as blood and saliva.
Genetics: The study of an organism's hereditary features and particularly the use of DNA analysis for criminal investigations.
Entomology: The study of insects, particularly the ones which are present during different phases of decomposition.
Anatomy: The study of the physical structure of organisms, particularly humans and other animals.
Ballistics, Firearms, and Explosives: A branch of physics focusing on the effects of projectiles and weapons such as bullets, guns, and bombs.
Fingerprinting: An investigation method relying on the individual characteristics of fingertips, hands, and feet to connect person(s) to a particular location or object.
Blood Spatter Analysis: Also called bloodstain pattern analysis, it is the application of physics and anatomy to blood and its movement.
Law: Rules set up by a community to dictate acceptable rules of behavior and possible punishments for crimes.
