Every file is now a digital evidence file. All litigators must become adept at using and challenging digital evidence in court, and there is no substitute for learning-by-doing. The Advocates' Society is pleased to introduce its new Digital Evidence Skills Workshop, which is designed to help advocates do just that.
You will learn and practise how to authenticate and use different forms of digital evidence properly during an examination-in-chief, and how to challenge digital evidence effectively on cross-examination. During these hands-on exercises you will work with a brand new case file containing realistic digital files and exhibits.
This skills workshop is your chance to practise and refine your skills working with digital evidence in a supportive environment. You will get practical, individualized feedback from our trained instructors. You will also learn from your peers as you work through the interactive exercises in small groups.
Your registration fee also includes access to the archive recording of The Advocates' Society's Digital Evidence for Litigators
plenary session from March 10, 2021, which you can view at your convenience in preparing for the workshop.
Please note that the workshop requires advance preparation based on a mock case file, which will be provided to you in advance of the workshop. Please ensure that you set aside enough time to prepare for the workshop, which may take a half-day to prepare for, depending on your level of experience.
Note: Those who already attended the Digital Evidence for Litigators plenary session on March 10, 2021 may register for the difference between the price they paid for the March 10 plenary session and the cost of the August 10 skills workshop (the "difference rate"). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
to register if you qualify for the difference rate.
