The Use of Electronic Evidence in Sexual Assault Cases
A wealth of potentially important information can be found in electronic form. This information can help a client’s case or jeopardize their privacy. In this webinar, we will explore the types of electronic data and how data forensics works. We will discuss an attorney’s role in identifying and preserving electronic evidence while also protecting their client’s privacy. We will review the requirements for OVW-funded attorneys when they are required to release personally identifying information in this context without a client’s VAWA-compliant release. And we will consider an electronic evidence checklist that can be used in initial client interviews to identify electronic information relevant to a case. Please join us!
This webinar is hosted by Victim Rights Law Center with support from the TA2TA Project through the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
