Course description

Admissibility of Email and Internet Evidence

Admissibility of Email and Internet Evidence

Make sure your evidence doesn’t get thrown out – learn how to successfully authenticate and admit email and internet evidence at trial. As the world becomes increasingly digitalized, practitioners will continue to encounter issues with the authentication and admissibility of email and Internet evidence. This is particularly true with regard to Internet evidence, which includes anything from social media posts, newspaper articles, YouTube® videos, search engine results or Internet archives. Prepared lawyers can get that evidence admitted if they have thought about potential problems with the authenticity and admissibility in advance. While the courts’ skepticism of this type of evidence is somewhat lessened, the reliability of email and Internet evidence is still subject to the same scrutiny under the Federal Rules of Evidence as anything else. This topic will increase practitioners’ understanding of the potential problems with email and Internet evidence, and explain how to authenticate and admit this evidence. The information that will be shared will be essential to building practitioners’ toolboxes to wield email and Internet evidence to best advance their clients’ cases.
