investigated. As noted in the film The Social Network, “The Internet’s not
written in pencil, it’s written in ink”. Learn the who, what, where, why, when
and how of using social media and online evidence in claims and litigation.
Examine how to procure, protect, preserve and present evidence gained from the
internet and ethical considerations in using this evidence. Case studies will
