Council of Europe course on cybercrime and e-evidence

A Council of Europe course is now available to Irish solicitors, courtesy of the Law Society’s EU and International Affairs Committee.

The training deals with the very important issues of the challenges in investigating cybercrime, and the difficulties in collecting and handling electronic evidence.

Based on the Council of Europe’s Budapest Convention on Cybercrime, this course provides practical tools to deal with the challenges of protecting human rights and the enforcement of legal order.

Flexible hours

The course is:

  • Developed by international experts for the Council of Europe,
  • Free of charge,
  • Entirely online and guided by a tutor (except for one welcome session, which will be held at the Law Society, Blackhall Place, Dublin 7, on 19 October),
  • Flexible hours (no need to connect to live sessions),
  • Co-organised by the Law Society of Ireland and the Council of Europe – successful participants will receive certification from both institutions.

Please register before Thursday, 12 October, if you are interested in attending.

Places are limited and those interested should apply immediately to avoid disappointment.
