Workshop on a Draft Convention on Electronic Evidence
Fri 20 May 2016, 14:30 – 17:00 BST
Stephen Mason, BA (Hons) (History and Educational Philosophy), MA, LLM, PGCE (FE), Barrister and IALS Associate Research Fellow
This workshop, continuing work launched at a conference in Zagreb in April 2016, aims to support a private initiative to draw up a Convention on Electronic Evidence.
“I have spoken so many times (especially in Europe) about electronic evidence, and spoken to so many people, and the same questions keeps on being raised: why is there no Convention on Electronic Evidence being devised by the Council of Europe or the UN?” (Stephen Mason)
This workshop is a FREE event for all interested parties to exchange ideas and contribute to the development of a draft international Convention text.
The draft will be further developed online: www.conventiononelectronicevidence.org and appear in Digital Evidence and Electronic Signature Law Review 2016. Each person attending the meeting will be listed as having attended the workshop in the formal minutes of the Convention.
