David Silva Ramalho co-organizes postgraduate course in Digital Evidence at FDUL

Together with Paulo de Sousa Mendes, a professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon, David Silva Ramalho, a Visiting Assistant Professor at the same Faculty, is part of the organizing committee of the new FDUL postgraduate course, dedicated to Digital Evidence in Criminal Procedure, to be taught from September.

David Silva Ramalho, a lawyer at Morais Leitão and a researcher at CIDPCC (Center for Research in Criminal Law and Criminal Sciences) will also be one of the speakers on the course - more specifically, with a session entirely dedicated to the difficulties in identifying the perpetrator of a crime in a digital environment.

Guided by the concern to combine the legal perspective in the general context of digital forensics and to outline the state of the art at national and European level, the aim of the postgraduate course is to gather the different sensitivities in this field.

For the first time in Portugal, the course brings together specialized contributions from all legal professionals, including judges, prosecutors, the Judicial Police, lawyers and academics, with speakers from the National Unit for Combating Cybercrime and Technological Crime of the Judicial Police, the PGR's cybercrime office, the cybercrime unit of the Belgian Federal Prosecutor's Office and the OECD's anti-corruption division, among other distinguished academic and operational experts in the field, both Portuguese and foreign.

The postgraduate course also has the institutional support of the Center for Judicial Studies, da Ordem dos Advogados e da FCT, e também com os apoios das sociedades de advogados Cuatrecasas, PLMJ, Sérvulo e da Morais Leitão.
