In today’s digital age where recording devices, video cameras and digital technologies are ever-present, audio and video evidence has become incredibly important in civil and criminal litigation throughout all state and federal courts. Attorneys must have at least a basic understanding of what can be done forensically and legally with such audio and video evidence to get the best results in their cases and the best outcomes for their clients.
Will your audio, acoustic, voice or video evidence be considered legally trustworthy and therefore admissible in court? Or has your audio or video evidence been tampered with or fabricated in any way thus making it inadmissible?
In this CLE course presented by attorney and forensic expert Herbert Joe, you will learn what can and cannot be done with audio, acoustic, voice and video evidence – whether you’re the proponent or opponent of such evidence. Mr. Joe utilizes a number of criminal and civil case examples from his own practice and mainly discusses original evidence, the authenticity of audio & video evidence and uncovering key facts from the audio and video evidence.
