Forensic DUID

You receive a lab report in your client’s case reflecting substances found in the blood sample drawn after their arrest.  

What do the amounts mean?
Is the lab reporting an active or inactive metabolite?
Does the lab report reflect free drug?
Is the amount reported an intoxicating amount?
What is the most current research on the drug reported and human performance?

The 3rd of 4 courses needed to earn the ACS-CHAL Lawyer-Scientist Designation

After this course you will be able to competently represent people charged with driving under the influence of drugs.

You receive a lab report in your client’s case reflecting substances found in the blood sample drawn after their arrest.

Are you currently able to vigorously represent your clients?

 

“AS an attorney that exclusively handles cases involving impaired driving, I have reviewed and attended dozens of legal and scientific education courses. None of which have been as valuable as the Axion courses in achieving successful case results for my clients.”

Course Description

The DUID course focuses on the analysis of biological fluids (blood, urine, hair, oral fluid) for drugs of abuse. As the name implies, it focuses on DUID from the alleged motorist’s point of view. The course includes one full day of instrumental analysis on the qualitative and quantitative analysis. Two days will be spent on pharmacology – both the time course of the drug in the body (pharmacokinetics) and the drugs impact on psychomotor function (pharmacodynamics). This course involves the hands-on use of instruments and actual processing of biological samples.
