An examination of digital evidence from initial collection through to presentation of evidence in court. Electronic discovery represents a new paradigm for litigators. Digital information, from email and attachments, to documents created on word processors, to instant messaging communications and "Twitters", is what comprises discovery today. Preserving the chain of custody from collection of this digital evidence to presentation in court is imperative. Electronic courtrooms are becoming more common to allow presentation of evidence in electronic format and this will continue, not only for large, document heavy cases, but for all litigation matters in the future. Australian courts continue to develop practical standards to ensure consistency of data and documents during discovery and at trial. This book is a must-read for all litigators, students and academics, especially those who have not dealt with electronic documents during discovery.

This volume offers a general overview on the handling and regulating electronic evidence in Europe, presenting a standard for the exchange process. Chapters explore the nature of electronic evidence and readers will learn of the challenges involved in upholding the necessary standards and maintaining the integrity of information. Challenges particularly occur when European Union member states collaborate and evidence is exchanged, as may be the case when solving a cybercrime. One such challenge is that the variety of possible evidences is so wide that potentially anything may become the evidence of a crime. Moreover, the introduction and the extensive use of information and communications technology (ICT) has generated new forms of crimes or new ways of perpetrating them, as well as a new type of evidence. Contributing authors examine the legal framework in place in various EU member states when dealing with electronic evidence, with prominence given to data protection and privacy issues. Readers may learn about the state of the art tools and standards utilized for treating and exchanging evidence, and existing platforms and environments run by different Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) at local and central level. Readers will also discover the operational point of view of LEAs when dealing with electronic evidence, and their requirements and expectations for the future. Finally, readers may consider a proposal for realizing a unique legal framework for governing in a uniform and aligned way the treatment and cross border exchange of electronic evidence in Europe. The use, collection and exchange of electronic evidence in the European Union context and the rules, practises, operational guidelines, standards and tools utilized by LEAs, judges, Public prosecutors and other relevant stakeholders are all covered in this comprehensive work. It will appeal to researchers in both law and computer science, as well as those with an interest in privacy, digital forensics, electronic evidence, legal frameworks and law enforcement.
