Welcome to the offical website of the Australian Academy of Forensic Sciences, a learned body dedicated to the advancement of the forensic sciences. Founded in 1967 by the late Oscar Schmalzback the Academy is unique in bringing together persons of professional standing from the legal, medical and scientific professions whom have contributed to the advancement or practice of forensic science. Membership is by invitation, however we encourage professional persons with an interest in becoming a member to make contact if they do not personally know a member through which we may facilitate consideration of membership.
