Council of Europe delivers judicial training on digital evidence in Ukraine

A two-day pilot training on “Use of electronic evidence in adjudication of corruption offences” will take place on 20-21 November 2018, in Kyiv, Ukraine. The training will bring together up to 25 judges of the local courts from the country’s various regions at the National School of Judges of Ukraine (NSJ).
The training aims at increasing understanding of judges on the peculiarities of electronic evidence and building practical skills on the use and admissibility of such evidence in adjudication of corruption offences. In addition to participation in interactive lectures, the participants will work in small groups on case studies and exercises.
The training curriculum and materials for this course have been developed by the Council of Europe international and national experts in close cooperation with the members of the working group of NSJ.
The pilot training will be followed with a Training of Trainers which will take place on 13-14 December 2018. The training course and manual developed within this activity will become part of the system of compulsory regular education for judges implemented by the National School of Judges of Ukraine, thus contributing to strengthening the overall capacity of Ukrainian judiciary to adjudicate corruption offences.
This activity is organised as part of the European Union/Council of Europe Partnership for Good Governance Project ‘Fight against Corruption in Ukraine,’ implemented since January 2015.
