Established in 1945 by Frances Glessner Lee, creator of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, the Harvard Associates in Police Science homicide investigation seminar is the longest-running training program of its kind in the country. Offered first at Harvard University and later at OCME in Baltimore, the seminar remains the standard to which other similar courses aspire.

Due to demand, enrollment has been expanded to include medical personnel, attorneys, other police officers and private investigators. The week-long seminar provides professionals with training in all aspects of forensic investigation
