Technology | Breakout: A Growing Toolbelt: Investigators and Technology
Given the growing reliance on technology in the legal industry, command of technology has become a requirement of ethical practice, often through explicit incorporation into ethics rules. This session will survey some of the tools at an investigator’s disposal for collecting and examining evidence. Discussion will include: 1) How these tools can be effectively employed; 2) Practical challenges in use (such as lack of experience and budgetary concerns); and 3) Tactical and legal considerations when presenting evidence before the adjudicatory bodies. Participants are encouraged to discuss tools and methods of which other jurisdictions may not be aware.
