In the nick of time, I note that forensics and eDisclosure experts CY4OR are joining forces with Manchester’s Deans Court Chambers for an evening of presentations and discussions about digital evidence, starting at 5:30pm on 29 September – that is, today.
The speakers are Keith Cottenden, CY4OR’s Forensic Services Director, and Joe Hart, barrister of Deans Court Chambers.
The subjects to be covered include:
- What electronic evidence may exist and can aid your case
- How to secure that evidence
- Technological advances in digital forensics
- How digital evidence is presented in court
- Recent case studies
Little or nothing is taught about digital evidence in the formal part of the education of solicitors or barristers, yet an increasing number of cases – commercial, criminal, matrimonial, employment and most other things – may turn on evidence from computers, smart phones and a wide range of other things. This is an opportunity to find out something about it and to meet up with others with a professional interest in the subject.
It is not too late to book a place. The registration details and a link to a flyer about the event can be found here.
Incidentally, CY4OR publish a useful email newsletter (which is where I came across this event). You can subscribe to it from their home page.
