Congratulations to ACS Forensic Chromatography XI graduates
With more than 163,000 members, the American Chemical Society (ACS) is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information. A nonprofit organization, chartered by Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers and related professions around the globe.
Our Mission and Vision
We are dynamic and visionary, committed to “Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”
In conjunction with Axion Analytical Laboratories, Inc. (Chicago, IL), the ACS offers hands-on training for lawyers in the science of analytical chemistry through its 3-level seminar series that can be found at www.ForensicChromatography.com.
What makes this class really unique in the legal field is three aspects that form the core of its educational model:
1. It is hands-on. From day one, attendees get to use the Gas Chronograph. They do injections, use and manipulate the software, install columns, build calibration curves, trouble shoot issues and much much more.
2. The Instructors. The scientific instructors include Professor Emeritus Dr. Harold McNair, (the icon of Gas Chromatography, who in 1956 was the very first person in the entire Untied States to be conferred a PhD in Gas Chromatography), Dr. Lee Polite (international instructor for Agilent Technologies which is the largest GC manufacturer in the world, and international chromatography instructor), and Mr. Lew Fox (retired software engineer and chemometrics specialist)
3. It is practical. Attendees not only learn how the machine operates in theory and in practice, but they also learn how to apply it immediately in the courtroom through focused instruction on themes, case presentation, oral communication, effective and etheical cross and direct examination.
Today, twenty-five lawyers graduated from the 11th version of the ACS Forensic Chromatography course.
Those newest graduates include:
|First name||Last name||State|

To date, for the Hands-on ACS Forensic Chromatography Course, there have been 198 graduates from 40 states. You can see who from your state has graduated from the class here: http://www.forensicchromatography.com/graduates/
The ACS is living up to its mission statement: “Improving people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.”
