At the same time, the federal and state courts are struggling to apply established constitutional principles to the acquisition and use of electronic information in criminal proceedings, and criminal defense attorneys are coping with a new world of hard drives, mobile devices, and terabytes of data. This pair of 90-minute webinars address the collection, disclosure, and use of “criminal electronically stored information” from initial investigation through trial. Attendees will learn about the use of electronic information in criminal proceedings from a distinguished faculty; be introduced to the relevant statutes, case law, and law enforcement policies; and take away practical tips on investigation, prosecution, and defense.
