Center for Studies of Law in Action Robert F. Borkenstein Courses
The Center for Studies of Law in Action builds on the work of Professor Robert F. Borkenstein, inventor of the Breathalizer, the first practical instrument for testing breath alcohol. The Center provides students and professionals with the latest information in the field of chemical tests for breath alcohol and other drugs.
Twice a year, in May and December, the Center offers one-week expert-level program of on-campus instruction and interaction, on medical and legal topics related to the consumption of alcohol.
It is an honor to have The Center for Studies of Law in Action on the IU Bloomington campus this week offering the Robert F. Borkenstein Course on Alcohol and Highway Safety: Testing, Research and Litigation. The course was founded in 1958, by Professor Robert F. Borkenstein, the inventor of the Breathalyzer® and a professor of Criminal Justice at Indiana University. It is a requirement in many state programs for analysts to complete the training before they go to court.More Information on the Borkenstein Courses
