Event in Barcelona, 26-27 May 2011

Fee: €160 / Languages: English, Spanish

With financial support from the Criminal Justice Programme of the European Union European Commission – Directorate-General Justice

The seminar will discuss the validity and admissibility of electronic evidence in criminal proceedings. The main aims of the seminar are:

  • to define ‘electronic evidence’ and offer practical illustrations and examples of analogue and digital evidence;
  • to present the practical challenges relating to the collection and use of digital evidence;
  • to discuss the legal implications of digital evidence (collection, evaluation and admissibility);
  • to identify some of the practical problems that judges and prosecutors have to deal with in criminal proceedings;
    • to provide an overview of good practices in various EU Member States.

Finally, the seminar will assess how the use of electronic evidence can help to rationalise, simplify or possibly complicate criminal procedures and trials.
