Digital Technology Trainings

​The High Tech Prosecutor
February 27 – March 2, 2017, Savannah, GA
Flyer | Draft Agenda | Registration | Hotel

The National District Attorneys Association is pleased to bring you a course to address technology from investigation through trial.

Technology drives every part of our personal and professional lives. Our world is built around computers, the Internet, and cell phones. As technology advances, so do the opportunities (and challenges) for the prosecution team. Whether you work in a unit that specifically handles high tech crime, or you are managing more “traditional” cases, technology is omnipresent. Computers, smart phones, and other devices are instruments of criminal activity, repositories of information, and evidence. It is important to understand how electronic evidence works in order to prove your case. Social media is a treasure trove of information, if you know where to look.

This course is designed for prosecution teams who want to learn more about electronic and high tech evidence in their cases as well as develop a better understanding of how to incorporate technology into the courtroom. You will spend the first two days of the course learning about the technology behind computers, cell phones and other media from experts in the field. The second part of the course will focus on managing technological evidence in your case as well as bringing technology into your trial practice. An optional “hands on” tech lab will help you incorporate cutting edge trial software into your cases. After taking this course, you will feel more confident working with computer, cell phone, and social media evidence. You will learn how to avoid ethical pitfalls and how to better try your case to a judge or jury using the latest visual trial techniques.

Tentative Subjects Include:
How Computers Actually Work | Obtaining and Using Electronic Evidence | High Tech Courtroom Visuals | Cell Towers, GPS, and other Location-Based Evidence | Computer Forensics | Social Media Evidence | Ethics for Your Visual Trial | FBI Resources for You | Directing the Computer Tech | The Visual Trial — Technology for the Courtroom | Hands on Learning Lab
