Criminal investigations and electronic evidence workshop


Disclosure, authentication and the tools used - a discussion of the legal issues


7 December 2016, The Rothley Court Hotel, Leicestershire


The Investigator is delighted to host a one-day workshop run by leading barrister and internationally renowned expert on electronic evidence Stephen Mason.
This unique one day event – prepared exclusively for The Investigator - will focus on all the key legislation and best practice arising from electronic evidence in criminal proceedings.
It will include the legal issues relating to the disclosure of electronic evidence; the authentication of electronic evidence and the legal issues that might arise in criminal proceedings when relying on tools to analyse and present digital evidence.
The emphasis will be on providing an up-to-date picture on how judges respond to issues that arise, and those attending are encouraged to share (where possible) their experiences in the interests of encouraging good practice.
The day will be based around two sessions:
Session One: The disclosure of electronic evidence: guidance available; management by the judge; an illustration – indecent images of children; rights/duties of the parties
Session Two: Authentication of electronic evidence: Consideration of the legal issues relating to the tools used to seize and interrogate electronic evidence
