Event fully booked!


Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets contain personal information such as call history, text messages, e-mails, digital photographs, videos, calendar items, address books, passwords, and credit card numbers. They can be useful as sources of digital evidence to be examined when criminal activities occur.

This seminar aims to share advanced knowledge and the exchange of experience and best practice between judges, prosecutors and lawyers in private practice who deal with criminal proceedings involving e-evidence on mobile devices.

Key topics

  • Definition of 'e-evidence': practical examples of analogue and digital evidence
  • Legal implications of e-evidence (collection, evaluation and admissibility)
  • The rise of evidence on mobile devices
  • Insights into different national EU criminal justice systems regarding the handling of e-evidence in court
