Computer Forensics ~ Criminal Law ~ Famous Cases + Quiz + Flash Cards = 100 Slides
Computer forensics handles evidence found in computers and digital storage media. Its practitioners examine digital media to identify, preserve, recover, and analyze data. They then present facts and opinions about the digital information to their clients, who are often those who will ultimately bring such materials to court. Famous cases which have advanced this field are covered throughout, like the BTK killer, Duncan, Tyree, Corcoran, etc., There are also search and seizure issues in this area and the two latest SCOTUS cases as to search and seizure of digital devices are also covered.

This kind of evidence is increasingly accepted as reliable within the U.S. and European court systems. The usual rules of evidence apply to this newer kind of evidence; that it be authentic, reliably obtained, and admissible.

This is a powerpoint presentation of this topic and includes the top cases from the field. It is followed by a 20 point multiple choice test and a 35 card set of Flash Cards. These Flash Cards can be used for review, testing or to facilitate class discussion.
