The legal profession is responding to the increasing importance of digital evidence in legal cases by extending its professional development training to include computer forensics. In the first of a series of presentations to 23 Essex Street, information forensics specialists Andy Clark and Nick Spenceley, directors of Inforenz, spoke about The Hidden Life of Documents. They demonstrated how rigorous forensic investigation can reveal unexpected information about computer files such as how, when and by whom they are created. They were also able to show how such data has provided key evidence for both prosecution and defence in a wide variety of criminal cases. The Inforenz talk was followed by a presentation by barristers from 23 Essex Street about the legal issues surrounding the use of digital evidence.
