15.03.2017

This conference will focus on two sets of challenges for law enforcement and criminal justice that have developed in the collection and sharing of computer based evidence and en-forcement.

 

The conference will bring together scholars from Europe and the United States to explore the challenges faced by stakehold-ers (particularly: law enforcement, government, service provid-ers and citizens) that arise with the collection and transfer of digital evidence. The conference will be divided into five related streams:

First, the conference will map specific challenges inherent to enforcement related to online evidence. Given the trans-border nature of online enforcement and the disparate legal interests that exist, particularly between the US and Europe, this session will bring together academics and government officials to help define the challenges that exist for cross border sharing of data.

The second session will delve deeper into the specific challeng-es for policy makers who must navigate the legal swamp that is online evidence sharing. This session will include policy mak-ers from the EU Commission, Eurojust, national data protection supervisory representatives, as well as from privacy advocacy groups.

The third session will take the example of enforcement in the field of IP law to draw lessons that might serve other domains of online evidence collection. This panel will include academ-ics, and representatives of the CJEU.

The fourth session will discuss the short comings that arise with the use of MLA instruments in the collection of evidence with a view towards creative solutions, which respect fundamental rights and yet still accomplish the goals of online enforcement.

Lastly, the fifth panel will discuss limitations on collection of online evidence in the US/European context recently developed in the Microsoft case in New York. This session will discuss the case and explore the European and American implication of this litigation. This panel will include key actors within the case as well as noted commentators.
