Abstract

Electronic evidence is now recognised as the main source of evidence worldwide. It affects every aspect of law – both criminal and civil – and with the internet becoming increasingly significant in our day–to–day lives, it is even more important for all lawyers to understand electronic evidence and apply this understanding to daily practice.
