European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ)

 DIGITAL EVIDENCE



In accordance with the terms of reference of the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ), a comparative study on the impact of the Internet and new technologies on rules of evidence and modes of proof before the courts (primarily in areas of civil and administrative law proceedings) will be carried out.  A questionnaire focusing only on challenges and procedural changes will be developed to collect the relevant information from member states and associations of legal practitioners to complete this study.

One or more regional seminars with legal practitioners in member states could be organised in 2015 not only to collect information in reply to the questionnaire but also to promote dialogue on the issues and exchange information on good practices.

The CDCJ will examine the outcome of the study at its plenary meeting in October 2015 and, where necessary, make proposals, as it deems appropriate, regarding possible follow-up.
