Cybercrime Mock Trial
Role play on how to conduct trials in cybercrime cases
Trier, 25-26 April 2016
The Cybercrime Mock Trial intends to be a practice-oriented exercise of a legal procedure that is the actual enactment of a fictitious cybercrime case. Participation in the trial provides the participants with an insider’s perspective from which to learn about the application of substantive and procedural cybercrime rules.
The course will help participants in gaining a basic understanding of the legal mechanism through which a hypothetical cybercrime dispute can be conducted in trial regardless of the concrete national procedural setting. Moreover, it helps them develop critical thinking skills, oral skills, understanding of substantive/procedural areas of law and international cooperation rules.
