Mutual Legal Assistance

The exchange of evidence across borders is becoming daily business for criminal defence lawyers. The ECBA has been paying close attention to this topic. It is a field where dual or multiple defence plays a key role. ECBA membership and attendance to conferences provides optimal networking opportunities to get to know defence lawyers with expertise in European and also other jurisdictions and exchange experience in this field.

Defence practitioners need to be able to answer these questions:
- How can I get evidence located abroad?
- How can I defend a request from abroad for gathering evidence in my jurisdiction?
- How can I defend against the use of evidence obtained abroad?

Accordingly the ECBA has formed a working group to promote the study and exchange of practical experience concerning these 3 questions.
