This research paper sort to provide the information that how forensic science and law are interlinked and also the significance of forensic science in the field of law helps the authorities of law to secure equity and fairness in the society. The difference between a scientific theory and law is that a theory is used to explain why something is observed. Scientific law is used to explain how the thing that is observed happened. The Laws are used to curb the problem that happened and prevent such incidents in the future by providing specific legislations to maintain stability in the society. Forensic Science is a multidisciplinary subject used for probing crime scene & gathering evidence to be used in prosecution of offenders in a court of law. More specifically, forensic scientists employ techniques and tools to interpret crime scene evidence and use that information in investigations. Forensic scientists and technicians come from a variety of academic backgrounds, although most have completed coursework in the life sciences, chemistry and law enforcement. Since forensic science brings together scientists and members of the judiciary to discuss and debate key areas of common interest and to ensure that the best scientific guidance is available to the courts, it creates a need for understanding of the forensic science to the lawyers and judge in his routine duties.
