We are proud to present our IHL Clinic students who worked with us this semester. This week we introduce the students who worked on the Digitally Derived Evidence ('DDE') project.

The students have prepared comprehensive legal summaries of cases using digital evidence – photographs, videos, aerial and satellite images, call data records, emails as well as social media posts – these are just a few examples of what our students researched on. Now, based on their findings, they are creating guidelines on different types of DDE that legal practitioners can refer to in the future when dealing with this type of evidence.

We are extremely grateful to all our students who have put a tremendous amount of effort into this project and amazed us with their high-quality research and dedication.
