Case law at both the federal and state levels addressing electronically stored information (ESI) is exploding as law enforcement and the public at large – including those accused of committing crimes – exponentially expand their use of electronic devices. At the same time, courts look to the Bill of Rights, an 18th Century creation, to address which ESI-related law enforcement techniques are consistent with our constitutional rights.
This program is intended to explore the collision between the Bill of Rights and the technologies available to law enforcement and accused defendants in the 21st Century. Learn from a faculty of jurists, prosecutors, and defense counsel as we explore an exciting and rapidly developing area of criminal law.
The faculty will also look beyond the constitutional dimension of ESI in criminal actions and will explore practical issues of importance to prosecutors and defense counsel, including cooperation and its limits between the prosecution and the defense, production and search of ESI, and admissibility of ESI.
- Learn the constitutional limits on government use of advanced technologies to investigate criminal behavior.
- Find out what defenses are available when the government attempts to make use of the fruits of its investigations at the pretrial or trial stages.
- Understand how ESI should be managed by both the prosecution and the defense at trial.
- Discover what an attorney must know about ESI to be competent.
Who would benefit most from attending this program?
This program is intended for any attorney who prosecutes or defends criminal actions in which ESI is an issue, whether the attorney is the prosecutor, retained defense counsel, public defender, or court-appointed defense counsel.
