E-Discovery (Electronic Discovery) is the “process of applying the traditional legal discovery process to electronic evidence”. Discovery is the “compulsory disclosure of data, facts, and documents in civil and criminal cases”. With technology advancing at a rapid pace, electronic evidence (E-Discovery) acquisition is the new direction in criminal investigations. Investigators will learn how to preserve, manage, and deliver digital evidence that may be presented at trial. Understanding new case law associated with E-Discovery and the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) will sharpen the skill sets of investigators. Class Objectives:

This (4) four-hour webinar will provide an understanding of what E-Discovery is, and how to engage the proper methods to preserving, managing, and delivering digital evidence that may be presented at trial. This course is designed to instruct law enforcement officers, analysts, and prosecutors on techniques to investigate e-discovery elements in investigations.

This class was developed by a seasoned detective with over 30 years in law enforcement, and 10 years in DB. The instructor, with the assistance of handouts and power point slides, will assist the student in learning to explain important concepts and understand terminology in electronic evidence acquisition.
