"Criminal ESI:" Electronic Information in Criminal Investigations and Proceedings
Electronic information is everywhere. At the same time, volumes and varieties of that information seem to grow exponentially. Unsurprisingly, electronic information is now a common feature in the commission, investigation, and prosecution of crimes. This program will address how the criminal justice system approaches electronic information.
Electronic information raises issues involving the Warrant and Particularity requirements of the Fourth Amendment and corresponding protections under New York law. Compelling access to encrypted electronic information raises issues of self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment. Electronic information also leads to disputes about preservation and spoliation by law enforcement and “cooperation” during discovery, admissibility, as well competence of counsel under the Sixth Amendment.
Join us for this important and timely program which will include 50 minutes of ethics CLE. A live webcast option is also available.
Sponsored by the New York State Bar Association Committee on Continuing Legal Education, the Committee on Technology and the Legal Profession, the Criminal Justice Section, and the White Collar Litigation, eDiscovery, and Social Media Committees of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section.
