                                             Strengthen the role of higher education institutions
        Proposed Project Name                in society by development lifelong learning in
                                             forensic Science

                                             The aim of lifelong learning is to prepare guide for
                                             universities to promote quality education and training in
                                             forensic science disciplines by promoting a consistent
                                             approach while tailoring their programs to meet the needs of
                                             the applicable community.
                                             The forensic lifelearning program will increase the options
                                             available to students seeking to supplement their biology or
                                             criminal justice education with a forensic degree and this will
        Importance of the project            increase their employment opportunities. Life learning in
                                             forensics provides the core building blocks for careers in
                                             forensic science and forensic biology. This combines criminal
                                             justice courses with natural science courses. The forensic
                                             lifelong learning program is designed specifically to help
                                             college students become highly skilled investigators at various
                                             forensic crime scenes.
                                             Forensic life learning program will establish a dynamic
                                             working group involving scientists from partner universities

                                             system, providing crucial information about the evidence to
                                             the trier of fact. Because the work they do both at the crime
                                             scene and in the laboratory often must be used in court, it is
                                             especially important that the training and education of
         The problem
                                             forensic scientists provide a solid scientific background and a
                                             broad base in criminalistics. Since Palestine is a new
                                             established state we are looking to establish this life learning
