Whether we like it or not, video surveillance systems proliferate our private and public lives. And because of this, attorneys now have greater opportunities to use recorded audio and video footage as evidence for their clients. In the wake of this continually growing new digital media, NCAVF has developed a one-hour MCLE course, accredited by the State Bar of California.
Our MCLE course is titled Utilizing Video and Audio Evidence In Criminal and Civil Litigation. It focuses on many aspects of proper audio and video evidence treatments. First, the class reviews California laws and common misunderstandings about admissibility of audio and video evidence. We provide an understanding of legal and illegal uses of such recordings. We then move further into the process of finding, handling, analyzing and preparing audio and video evidence for court.
This course also references cases NCAVF has played a major role in shaping. Throughout the presentation, both audio and video evidence examples are shown to clarify the various potential enhancements that can be made to digital media samples with high-tech software. It is meant to bring some awareness to attorneys who might not yet know the full capabilities of their audio or video evidence; enhancing a single surveillance recording may completely change the course of a trial.
Most importantly, the experts at NCAVF go over the challenges attorneys will face and crucial mistakes they can avoid when dealing with digital media evidence.
