I keep getting asked about the definition of “forensic”. Remember … “Bones” on TV is a “forensic” pathologist. There are “forensic” psychologists, “forensic” scientists and “forensic” accountants (like me!) Forensic comes from the Latin words “forensis” and “forum” which mean “public” and “forum”. A “forensic” (any profession) is an individual, who declares, in a public forum (example … Court of Law) the facts and truths of a matter. “Bones” declares who did it and how it was done. We forensic accountants do the same!
