Accessing the Treasure Trove of Social Media Evidence

October 16, 2019

Mitchell Hamline School of Law



This presentation will show how the unique, emergent form of social media evidence can be used for criminal investigations and civil litigation e-discovery. There will be an examination of the DoJ memo to law enforcement uncovered by FOIA stressing why and how to use social media in criminal cases. Examples of social media evidence recovered from smart phones, personal computers, and the cloud will be provided.  The ethics of social media evidence collection will be listed including what you can and cannot do, if you want to keep your license that is.
